The UAlberta Faculty of Arts has left its mark on Alberta: the research conducted by our talented, diverse and creative people in areas such as language preservation, violence, gender roles, labour mobility, and the history of Aboriginal peoples has a lasting impact on our understanding of and engagement with our province and society. That impact reverberates throughout Canada and the world — but it starts right here in Alberta.
