“TransCanadian Networks: Excellence and Transversality from Spain about Canada towards Europe”
This networking project is born out of an interest in joining the material, logistic and intellectual resources of seven research groups, four of which have a solid trajectory in the field of Canadian Studies in Spain. Additionally, it aims at continuing and strengthening the international dimension of their research activities, and advance towards more transversal and multidisciplinary modes of research.
The name TransCanadian Networks has been inspired by a history of academic collaboration between scholars in Canada and Spain through the TransCanada Institute (University of Guelph), directed by Smaro Kamboureli. It is also meant to evoke the kind of transatlantic collaboration we wish to encourage, support and promote.
