In Conversation With


Public talks with Canada’s leading social sciences and humanities scholars

SSHRC, in partnership with The Conversation Canada, is pleased to present In Conversation With, a series of public talks featuring the most recent winners of SSHRC’s Impact Awards.

The series brings engaging and enlightening dialogue with SSHRC-funded researchers to Canadians from coast to coast to coast, highlighting the value and importance of social sciences and humanities research.

Each virtual event is open to the public. Listen to some of Canada’s most accomplished scholars, whose perspectives are shaping our understanding of people and society at large. Each session is in English or French, with simultaneous interpretation and closed captioning available in both languages. Recordings are made available afterwards.
