SSHRC-funded researcher wins 2015 Governor General’s Award

SSHRC-funded sociologist Jean-Philippe Warren has won the 2015 Governor General's Literary Award in the category of French non-fiction. He has been recognized for writing the first major biography on newspaper baron and politician Honoré Beaugrand, a key figure in Quebec history.

Warren is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Concordia University, and the University’s Research Chair for the Study of Quebec. He is also co-director of a research group at the Centre interdisciplinaire sur la diversité et la démocratie.

Over the last decade, Warren has received a number of SSHRC grants in support of his research on examining the development and history of Canadian social sciences, and on better understanding Quebec society. In 2013, he and his research team received an Insight Grant for a project on analyzing the political and intellectual fields of Quebec during the interwar period.
