Starting on November 1st, 2015, Gilberto Fernandes will be joining the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies at York University as a postdoctoral visitor, working in close relationship with the Clara Thomas Archives and Special Collections, the Department of History, and the Portuguese faculty at the Department of Languages, Literature, and Linguistics. His responsibilities will include directing the PCHP and implementing our strategic plan; conducting research on Lusophone diaspora topics; and teaching a fourth-level undergraduate history course.
This position has been made possible thanks to a generous financial donation from a prominent member of Toronto’s Portuguese-Canadian community, resulting from the ongoing fundraising campaign by the PCHP and York University’s Division of Advancement. A formal acknowledgment of this donation and related organizational partnership will be made later.
We are excited to be partnering with the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies team, and grateful for York University’s ongoing support.
Stay tuned for more.
