SSHRC and The Conversation Canada launch public talks series featuring award-winning social sciences and humanities scholars

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), in partnership with The Conversation Canada, is pleased to announce a series of upcoming public talks—In Conversation With—featuring the winners of SSHRC’s 2021 Impact Awards

Over the next few months, editors from The Conversation Canada will host live interviews with André Blais, Carole Lévesque, Maïka Sondarjee, Rashid Sumaila and Lynne Viola on topics ranging from gender and international development, Indigenous knowledge and academia, voting behaviour and electoral systems, and ocean economics, to what we can learn from 20th-century Russian history and the era of Stalinism.

Each virtual event is open to the general public and will include a question and answer period. Everyone is welcome to attend and hear from some of Canada’s most accomplished scholars, whose perspectives are shaping our understanding of people and society at large. Each session will be in either English or French, with simultaneous interpretation and closed captioning available in both languages.

Join us for the live talks via live webcast. Recordings of the events will also be made available.

The first talk of the series, In the Public Domain: Restoring and Preserving Silenced Histories in Russia, with Lynne Viola, professor in the Department of History at the University of Toronto, and recipient of SSHRC’s 2021 Impact Awards Gold Medal, will be on March 24, 2022, at 1 p.m. (eastern).

Don’t miss it. Join the conversation!
