Rationale for Establishment of UCD Centre for Canadian Studies

Rationale for Establishment
The UCD Centre for Canadian Studies serves as a forum for intellectual and academic debate and research relating to historic and contemporary Canada. The Centre’s objectives are as follows: promotion of research and teaching in Canadian Studies at UCD and nationally; development of critical mass in Canadian Studies research at UCD; provision of a development and funding mechanism for Canadian Studies at UCD. The Centre also acts as a focal point for the visiting UCD Craig Dobbin Chair in Canadian Studies.
