Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is Canada’s largest gathering of academics, and one of the largest in the world. It’s a place to hold critical conversations of our time, hear from a diverse set of voices, share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships to help share the Canada of tomorrow. Go to the About Congress page to learn more.
The health and safety of all Congress attendees and doing our part to decrease the spread of COVID-19 within our community are our top priority. We continue to monitor the guidelines put forth by health officials on large, in-person gatherings, and are currently exploring different event formats for Congress 2022. More details will be shared shortly on the Congress 2022 page.
Participating associations can be found here. Don’t forget that you are welcome to attend any association conference(s) that sparks your interest, regardless of your membership status, by paying the applicable conference fee. We’ll list the participating associations on the Association conferences page when confirmed.
We work actively to foster a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive global community of scholars and practitioners, and are therefore dedicated to the creation of a safe, respectful, and collegial experience for all attendees of Congress.
Cyberbullying is real, and seven per cent of Canadians experience it personally, according to Statistics Canada. If you are the victim of online harassment or bullying, there are resources available to you, and Congress organizers encourage you to use them. See the Royal Canadian Mounted Police website resources or the Government of Canada site on How to prevent cyberbullying.
