Brock University & the University at Buffalo – The SUNY


Welcome to the home page for the Institute for Transnational Studies in the Americas, a joint venture of Brock University and the State University of New York, University at Buffalo. ITSA is intended to provide a structure to support research, visiting scholars, conferences, and teaching activities, pertaining to a wide variety of theoretical and practical phenomena that cross national boundaries in North America. Given our universities’ respective locations on different sides of the Canadian-American border in the Niagara bi-national region, our particular focus in the Institute is on questions that pertain to this geographic context. However, we actively seek partners on a project basis for research on more general themes and issues.

The Institute is a bi-national organization, with Dr. Jane Koustas and Dr. Munroe Eagles serving as the Co-Directors for Brock University and the University of Buffalo respectively.
