SSH News: Hill Times “Campus Research” issue, SSH response to Ottawa shooting, feedback on Impact report

Thursday, October 30, 2014


This week, The Hill Times released its “Campus Research” issue, featuring contributions from an array of writers about innovation in the sciences, social sciences, as well as aboriginal education. 

A message from the Director of Policy and Programming of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences outlines the important contribution that scholars and students in the humanities and social sciences have to make to Canada’s ongoing discussion about how best to respond to the St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Ottawa attacks of last week. The Federation is engaged in active media monitoring and will be sharing the media contributions of scholars and students via our social media.

The Young Academics of the Association of the European Schools of Planning (AESOP) have posted a blog response to the Federation’s Impact report, released a few weeks ago. The Impact report outlines the importance of measuring the impact of SSH research beyond the university, and proposes metrics to measure this impact. We would like to thank Simone Tulumello of AESOP for his thoughtful response.

A study by Statistics Canada sheds light on the cumulative earnings of Canadians by major field of study, using data from 1991-2010. The study finds that women consistently earn less than men for every major field of study, and that engineering and business administration grads are the top earners overall.
