FAHSS Research and Creative Activity Visibility Project

This fall we initiated a project designed to increase the visibility of FAHSS research and creative activity with the support of Mita Williams and her team in the Leddy library. The project aims to make our research and creative activity more available to scholars and students by taking full advantage of Leddy’s collection of digital tools. A working group with representation from each department is testing the efficacy of the tools; the group will report later in the spring.

SSHRC Working Group

Beginning in January, faculty thinking of applying for either a SSHRC Insight or Insight Development grant are invited to participate in a series of monthly sessions. Each session will address a different aspect of the application process and will feature a combination of guest presenters and shared ideas. The first session will take place on Friday, January 18 from 3-4:30pm in CHS-263. An email invitation will be sent in December.
