Diversité urbaine

Managing editor(s): Tania Saba (Directrice)

Journal preceded by Les Cahiers du Gres


The journal Diversité urbaine was created within the Groupe de recherche diversité urbaine (GRDU). Since its creation in 2000 by Deirdre Meitel and Sylvie Fortin, and with the contribution of a multidisciplinary team, the journal explores ethnic and religious issues, social diversity and new forms of identity in urban settings in Montreal and more broadly in Quebec.


In 2019, Tania Saba, founder and holder of the BMO Chair in Diversity and Governance, has been asked by Deirdre Meitel to ensure the direction and continuity of the publication. By pursuing its vocation of reflection and research on diverse and complex themes around diversity, the journal allows researchers in the humanities and social sciences, to publish their research in an empirical approach.
