Session Details:
This information session will include a presentation and Q&A with SSHRC personnel. The information session will also provide participants with an opportunity to interact with U of G faculty who have recently served, or are currently serving on SSHRC review committees through a fast-paced Q&A session led by Christine Bold and Mark Lipton, from the School of English and Theatre Studies.

Join us remotely: 
While we hope that you will consider joining the session in-person, SSHRC's presentation will be made available via Adobe Connect.
