Between, Across, and Through is the official podcast of the Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies at the University of Toronto. The Centre’s research focuses on individual experiences of migration in consideration of the complex dynamics of politics, culture, and society. Our podcast features conversations between leading scholars and Professor Kevin Lewis O’Neill, the director of the Centre of Diaspora and Transnational Studies. In each episode, we ask (and hopefully provide some answers to) the following questions: what are the links that bind humanity? How do we learn from the past? How do we learn from each other?

Our podcast's name is inspired by the Greek word for diaspora, which is composed of the verb speirō, meaning "to scatter," and dia, defined as "between, across, through.”
