Dr. Calliste, born in Grenada, was a nationally and internationally celebrated academic. Her scholarship focused on the complex interrelation of migration, work, race, ethnicity and gender in Canada. Her ground-breaking interdisciplinary research with African-Canadian railway porters and Caribbean-Canadian nurses and domestic workers explored under-researched dimensions of our social history.

The symposium, composed of three chaired panels with continental breakfast and lunch included, will be held on November 23rd, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at Residence Commons room 270.


This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Migration and Diaspora Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Latin American and Caribbean Studies.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
