Annual Report

Calgary Institute for the Humanities 2022-23 Annual Report

The scope of activites at the CIH has grown exponentially since 2017: 

An expanded group of resident fellows now engage in monthly seminars. Last year, these seminars served as a platform for our fellows, Scholar-in-Residence, postdoctoral researcher, and graduate student fellow to share their findings and collaborate across various fields, with seminars ranging from neural networks in science fiction to revolutionary cinemas to resource extraction in Canada's north to local food networks. 

We greatly increased the number of public lectures and symposia offered to the public, and dramatically increased attendance; our events calendar now features a prominent annual lecture series, featuring the LGBTQ2S+ Lecture, the Wayne O. McCready Lecture, the Naomi Lacey Memorial Lecture, and the Lecture in Applied Ethics. 

The CIH launched a public humanities fellowship program to sponsor PhD student placements with community organizations and each successful student is awarded a stipend of $10,000. 

Our interdisciplinary working groups include faculty and graduate students from across the Faculty of Arts, as well as cross-faculty teams including researchers from the Haskayne School of Business, Werklund School of Education, and School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape; the support we provide to these groups has provided a springboard for research publications, symposia, and many successful grant applications. 

We at the Calgary Institute for the Humanities are sincerely grateful to our donors for the confidence they have shown in us, enabling us to promote the value of the humanities and support individuals who critically engage in scholarship that explores what it means to be human.
