The Tubman Institute is home to a multi-disciplinary team of researchers dedicated to the study of  the history and legacy of slavery and the slave trade, the history of Africa and African migrations, African Canadian experiences, including the Underground Railroad,  and contemporary forms of slavery. In addition to the individual research agendas of Tubman fellows, associates and graduate students, The Tubman Institute hosts a number of research projects which are funded by outside agencies, including the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, an arms length funding agency of the Government of Canada. In this section, you will find further information related to some of the specific projects that compose the Tubman research agenda: among these is the “Slavery, Memory and Citizenship” project, a Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) funded by SSHRC, which the Tubman Institute hosts on behalf of a world-wide network of researchers and research institutes.
