Carleton University will receive more than $2.3 million in Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Insight Grants and Insight Development Grants. The funding is divided among 20 researchers covering a diverse range of projects and was announced by Greg Rickford, Minister of State (Science and Technology). The projects range from Unesco and photography and the sexual revolution to the history of painting in Britain to understanding AIDS as a political crisis.
Insight Development Grants support research in its initial stages. The grants enable the development of new research questions, as well as experimentation with new methods, theoretical approaches and/or ideas. Funding is provided for short-term research development projects, of up to two years, proposed by individuals or teams.
Long-term support for research is offered through SSHRC’s Insight Grants.
“As a research intensive university, Carleton is proud of its many nationally funded researchers and we are very pleased to see the commitment by the federal government to the social sciences and the humanities,” said Kim Matheson, vice-president (Research and International). “These newly funded projects at Carleton will help advance knowledge and understanding of important issues we all face as a society and will have an impact on bettering the lives of all Canadians.”
