Organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow.
Typically spanning eight days in late May and early June, Congress is home for nearly 70 scholarly association meetings and attracts an average of 6,000 attendees. Developed in partnership with a different host university each year, Congress programming is open to attendees, academics and non-academic audiences. From theatre research, literature studies and education to history, sociology and communications, Congress represents a unique showcase of scholarly excellence, creativity, and leadership.
Congress 2013 is being hosted by the University of Victoria in Victoria, British Columbia. The theme for this year’s Congress is “@ the edge.”
