The Grant Assist Program, Social Sciences and Humanities, in the Office of the Vice-President (Research) is setting up a new listserve for continuing faculty at all campuses (Augustana, Extension, St-Jean and North). The sshrcUofA listserv is dedicated to providing an arena for discussions on any topic that concerns applications to, and research funded by or of relevance to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). The list is unmoderated but is administered by the Senior Coordinator, Dr. Heather Young-Leslie.
The Grant Assist Program hopes to see collegial discussions regarding humanities and social sciences research, proposals, results and publications.
