Welcome to CESA
The Canadian Ethnic Studies Association (CESA) is a non-profit interdisciplinary organization devoted to the study of ethnicity, multiculturalism, immigration, inter-group relations and the cultural life of ethnic groups in Canada. CESA also publishes the Canadian Ethnic Studies Journal.
Members of the CESA Executive and Board have primarily come from various parts of Canada. There were exceptions for the Executive when in the 2000s the members were located in Calgary and Winnipeg respectively. In 2012 the CES Journal Office moved back to the University of Calgary after being located at the University of Manitoba for a six year period.
When you become a CESA member you will receive a subscription to Canadian Ethnic Studies/Études ethniques au Canada, a journal published three times a year. The Journal includes scholarly articles, research notes, book reviews, and bibliographic information in both English and French.
