Welcome to Congress 2023!


Congress 2023 took place at York’s Keele and Glendon Campuses in Toronto from May 27 to June 2. Over 10,000 scholars, graduate students, and practitioners in the humanities and social sciences (HSS) gathered together and shared their research.

The conference supported equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization (EDID), and, building on the first virtual Congress in 2021, featured virtual components to accommodate participants joining remotely.

Land Acknowledgement 

The Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and York University are honoured to visit, and learn about, the Indigenous lands across Canada. We acknowledge the diversity of Indigenous peoples from coast to coast to coast, and we extend our respects to all First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples for their valuable contributions, past and present.   

We recognize that many Indigenous Nations have longstanding relationships with the territories upon which York University campuses are located that precede the establishment of York University. York University acknowledges its presence on the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Huron-Wendat. It is now home to many First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. We acknowledge the current treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region.
