Hands down, it’s been one of the warmest weeks we’ve had in months, but before springing forward too quickly, what are some of the Federation’s highlights from 2013? Be sure to read our 2013 Annual Report and watch our new “Ideas can… bring us together” video featuring President, Antonia Maioni, and our Executive Director, Jean-Marc Mangin. We encourage you to share our video with friends and colleagues who are curious about what the Federation does – it’s a great 5-minute synopsis!
In other news, the Federation welcomed three of its newest members: the Canadian Association of African Studies/Association canadienne des études africaines, Sexuality Studies Association/Association d'études de la sexualité and the Canadian Cartographic Association/Association canadienne de cartographie.
This week, the Federation has also been present at the International Research Society for Public Management Conference 2014, held at Carleton University, April 8-10, 2014. As one of the event’s sponsors, our staff has been delighted to answer questions about the Federation and the upcoming Congress 2014. In the midst, the conference theme "Intersections: Governance, Democracy, Accountability" has explored the changing relationships among the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
Last but not least, a brief round-up of interesting reads from this week:
- Exploring the humanities through unique makerspaces (University Affairs)
- How to energize scholarship for the digital age (University Affairs)
- “Re-purposing” data in the Digital Humanities: Data beg to be taken from one context and transferred to another (London School of Economics and Political Science)
