Welcome to our research guide.
This guide focuses on Diasporas and Borders. It has been created with the purpose of providing initial materials important to your research process. Please be aware that the use of terminology or the use of language in this space is not intended to, but may ultimately reinforce many of the biases/tensions you have encountered during the course of your study. Additionally, while materials are presented on this document in English, you may be able to search in other languages.
The resources here skew heavily North American, but attempt to provide resources around the globe. These resources are grouped this way due to the transnational approach to research in these areas.

One way of understanding the history of diasporas is through exploring archives. A good place to identify archives is within the Directory of Ethnic and Multicultural Archives and Special Collections.
