Scope and content

Series contains proposals, grant applications, reports, data, and administrative documents related to James’ research projects. A significant portion of the series pertains to the following two projects:

The “Bridging the Solitudes” project ([2001?]-2005) examined the racial, ethnic, cultural and financial barriers faced in post-secondary education by students from traditionally marginalized groups. Thirty students participated at York University and Seneca College during the project and regularly met during the ‘common hour’ to discuss their ongoing experiences, expectations, and aspirations for university and life.

The “Racism, Violence and Health Project” (2002-2007) was a $1.25 million study funded by the Canadian Institute for Health Research. Over 900 individuals participated in the study through surveys, in-depth interviews, two-year micro-ethnographies, annual community forums, and smaller community meetings. The goal of the project was to determine perceptions of both global and racism-related stress in the Indigenous African Nova Scotian community, the Caribbean Canadian community in Toronto, and the African immigrant community in Alberta; and to document the first voice accounts of Black men, their families, and communities about their experiences of violence (including the violence of racism). The research team comprised of Dr. Wanda Thomas Bernand (leader), Dr. Dave Este, Dr. Carl James, Dr. Akua Benjamin, Dr. Carol Amaratunga, Dr. Fred Wien, research trainees, and collaborators (including the Health Association of African Canadians, Nova Scotia Association of Black Social Workers, Victoria Road United Baptist Church, Women's Health in Women's Hands, Tropicana Community Services, Calgary African Community Association, Calgary Immigrant Aid Society, Edmonton Immigrant Association, Calgary Catholic Immigration Society, and Calgary African Caribbean Advisory Council).
