Building Collaborations and Partnerships in the Social Sciences and Humanities
You are invited to attend the Building Collaborations and Partnerships in the Social Sciences and Humanities event.
This information session is intended for faculty members working in SSHRC disciplines who are interested in getting a better understanding of how to develop fruitful collaborations with academic, community and/or industry partners, as well as build and run large-scale research projects.
Following a roundtable discussion format, this session will be led by SSHRC-funded faculty members who have a successful history with such endeavours:
Pat Armstrong, professor, Sociology, LA&PS – principal investigator of “Reimagining Long-Term Residential Care” and co-editor of the book Creative Teamwork: Developing Rapid, Site-Switching Ethnography;
Stephen Gaetz, professor, Education – director of the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness and the Homeless Hub;
Carolyn Podruchny, associate professor, History, LA&PS – principal investigator of “Aandse: Anishinaabe ways of knowing and the transformation of university-based knowledge creation and transfer”;
Anna Hudson, professor, Visual Art and Art History, AMPD – director of Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage; and
Janine Marchessault, Department of Cinema and Media Arts, AMPD – director of Archive/Counter-Archive.
Michael Johnny, manager of knowledge mobilization at Innovation York, will also participate and share his expertise as it relates to facilitating partnership building and knowledge mobilization.
This is a great opportunity for York community members, either early career or mid-career, who are ready to change gears, to learn from their peers about the various approaches to forming collaborations and partnerships, and how to successfully maintain them.
RSVP if you are interested in attending this event. Refreshments will be served.
