Centre for Transnational Mennonite Studies

The Centre for Transnational Mennonite Studies (CTMS) at the University of Winnipeg was established in 2016 as a partnership between the Chair in Mennonite Studies and the Plett Foundation, which has been located at the university since 2005.

CTMS is a research centre that approaches the history and culture of Mennonites within a transnational context. It recognizes that Mennonites are a global people, historically engaging as settlers in international migrations, multi-national residences, international social services, and foreign missions amidst a strengthening dialogue between communities of the Global North and South. CTMS seeks to enhance teaching, research, knowledge mobilization, and community outreach by employing a transnational framework.
