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:
- a panel of leading international scholars who will discuss how to decolonize and strengthen Indigenous research and research training;
- a session about how we measure excellence and how these metrics can affect equity, diversity, inclusion; and
- an information session on SSHRC’s funding opportunities and the competition process.
We will also bring two SSHRC-funded research projects to the screen with our documentary series.
