Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture
By providing opportunities for faculty and students in the humanities, fine arts, and cognate fields to meet and collaborate, the Centre creates new synergies between research and graduate teaching, promotes outstanding scholarship, and forges partnerships with the wider communities of which Concordia University is a part. The Centre is inclusive and welcomes scholars and partners in domains beyond the humanities committed to humanist perspectives on knowledge, creation, and expression in human cultures past and present.
With interpretive axes based in language, literature, religion, history, philosophy, culture, and media, the humanities are uniquely positioned to interpret a world in perpetual transition. The profound and diverse challenges of the twenty-first century place a premium on the kinds of creative thinking that humanities disciplines encourage and are singularly poised to communicate. As a crucible for innovative ideas and a prime laboratory for interdisciplinary research, the Centre aims to make the whole of humanities-oriented scholarship at Concordia greater than the sum of its parts.
