  • University of Calgary
    • Calgary Institute for the Humanities

      For over forty years, the Calgary Institute for the Humanities has worked to foster humanities research of the highest order, to encourage interdisciplinary conversations between scholars, and to communicate the results of Humanities research to the greater community. Created at the University of Calgary in 1976, the CIH has a proud history of supporting research excellence through three key programs: annual resident fellowships; research projects; and knowledge engagement with the community.

  • University of Saskatchewan
    • Interdisciplinary Centre for Culture and Creativity

      Founded in 2009 in the College of Arts & Science, and anchored in the Humanities and Fine Arts, the ICCC fosters interdisciplinary programming, research, and artistic activities. The ICCC seeks to inspire and facilitate intellectual and artistic creativity among faculty so as to create new scholarship and programs that otherwise could not thrive. By connecting academic innovation, creative research and artistic work, and student mentorship and training with areas of defined and emerging strengths, the ICCC provides new opportunities for meaningful partnerships, interdisciplinary collaborations, and community-building.
