Starting on November 1st, 2015, I will be a postdoctoral visitor with the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York University, working in close relationship with the Clara Thomas Archives and Special Collections, the Department of History, and the Portuguese faculty at the Department of Languages, Literature, and Linguistics. My responsibilities will include directing the public history and archival outreach activities of the Portuguese Canadian History Project, as outlined in its strategic plan; conducting research on Lusophone diaspora topics; and teaching a fourth-level undergraduate history course.
This position has been made possible thanks to a generous financial donation from a prominent member of Toronto’s Portuguese-Canadian community, resulting from the ongoing fundraising campaign by the PCHP and York University’s Division of Advancement. A formal acknowledgment of this donation and related organizational partnership will be made later.
Very excited to be joining the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies team, and grateful for York University’s ongoing support for the PCHP.
Stay tuned for more.
