The premiere destination for Canada’s scholarly community

The Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the premiere destination for Canada’s scholarly community. Organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS), Congress brings together thousands of scholars, students, practitioners and policy makers in a different city each year to share ideas, discuss today’s complex issues and enrich their research. They gather under the aegis of more than 70 associations representing a rich spectrum of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. From theatre, literature and education to history, sociology and international development, Congress represents a unique showcase of scholarly excellence, creativity, and leadership.

Congress 2012 is being co-hosted by Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario. The theme for this year’s Congress is Crossroads: Scholarship for an Uncertain World. Finally, CFHSS gratefully acknowledges the support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
