SSHRC celebrates 40 years of ideas, talent and diversity

Guest blog by The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC)

Congress 2018 coincides with the 40th anniversary of the founding of SSHRC, and we are excited to contribute some excellent events to its program. 

Our Storytellers contest will once again bring the next generation of talented students to the event to showcase how social sciences and humanities research is affecting our lives, our world and our future for the better. Come watch their presentations in the CK-Centre for Kinesiology — also known as the Congress Hub — in the Expo Event Space.

Don’t forget to join us at a reception in the same location after this event to celebrate SSHRC’s 40th birthday — cake will be served! Find out more about SSHRC’s 40-year history.

SSHRC will host a number of other events, including:

We will also bring two SSHRC-funded research projects to the screen with our documentary series.
