Concordia University has a strong tradition of research and inquiry on matters related to Indigenous peoples. As befits the inherently interdisciplinary nature of First Peoples studies, Concordia researchers working in this area come from a variety of disciplines and blend different methodologies and theoretical frameworks both to reveal the richness and complexity of Indigenous peoples’ ways, and to develop new analytical and interpretive perspectives inspired by them. The creation of a First Peoples Studies research current at the graduate level complements the upcoming implementation of an undergraduate program in First Peoples Studies which will be housed in the School of Community and Public Affairs. These twin developments will consolidate Concordia’s position as a great place for research with and for Indigenous peoples. Concordia University is also a member and partner institution of DIALOG – Aboriginal People Research and Knowledge Network. Financially supported by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council and the Fonds de recherche société et culture, this network offers Concordia faculty and students numerous opportunities for research, research development and interaction with other researchers interested in First Peoples Studies in Quebec, Canada and internationally.
