The Canadian Network of Durkheimian Studies/Réseau canadien d’études durkheimienne (CNDS/RCED) was formed in the Spring of 2012. It became a research cluster of the CSA in the Fall 0f 2013. Its activities are also closely tied with those ofLaboratoire d’études durkheimiennes de L’Université du Québec à Montréal (LED, UQAM) which hosted an international conference, Durkheim et Le Politique in August 2013. The organising committee consists of, in alphabetical order: Drs. Ronjon Paul Datta, Tara Milbrandt, François Pizarro-Noël, Frank Pearce and  William Ramp.The creation of CNDS/RCED was stimulated by longstanding collaborative Durkheimian research in Canada and the desire to institutionalise this activity. The initial objectives of the Network are to: encourage broad-based Durkheimian sociological research (theoretical and empirical); further studies of the history and development of Durkheimian social science; provide a venue for dialogue, exchange and collaboration; share resources for teaching Durkheimian sociology; and coordinate broader research programmes. CNDS/RCED is officially affiliated with: The British Centre for Durkheimian Studies, Oxford University; the recently formed Brazilian Centre of Durkheimian Studies, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, at Porto Alegre, Brazil; and La Société Française d’Études Durkheimiennes, Paris. The research cluster has organised five sessions for the 2014 Congress and will meet to discuss planning and welcome interested researchers and students. The network welcomes activity in English and French.
