My research emerged out of my interests for heritage, ethnicity and migration. It looks at Barbadians (who have been deemed to inherently possess a "culture of migration"), and their migration to Canada, for the period, 1966 - 2016. In essence, it investigates the impact of this migratory exercise on the migrants (based on their ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs, socio- economic status, etc), and the host nation. My research will be supervised by Professor Barrington Walker.
