This year at the Calgary Institute for the Humanities, we look forward to the intersections of history, culture, identity, and politics as our Fellows research topics ranging from Indigenous identities past and present, interpretations of Buddhist doctrines in Sixth-Century China, entrudo and carnival after Brazilian independence, and creative interpretations of the surveillance state in Canada.

We’re pleased to announce that the Wayne O. McCready Fellowship for an Emerging Scholar, with support of the Dean’s Office, Faculty of Arts, will this year provide a full CIH fellowship as it recognises a scholar on the verge of a significant scholarly breakthrough. The Frances Spratt Graduate Student Fellowship continues the tradition of supporting a Ph.D candidate whose research contributes to the public good by promoting the core values of the humanities and building bridges of learning to the broader community.

Congratulations to all and we look forward to supporting you in your research.
