1. Jackman Humanities Institute Research Fellows

Research Fellows hold an office on the tenth floor of the Jackman Humanities Building and are the central members of a circle of fellows for 2010-2011.  They participate in weekly luncheons, regular activities of the JHI, and help us to plan special events.  They were chosen for their excellence and in relation to the annual theme for 2010-2011, Image and Spectacle.

We are pleased to welcome:

2. Jackman Humanities Institute Six-Month Research Leaves

Research leaves are granted by the Jackman Humanities Institute as a continuation of the Chancellor Jackman Research Fellowships in the Humanities program.  Holders of this fellowship receive a six-month leave from the normal teaching and administrative duties of their department in order to undertake research (including travel) on the project proposed in their application, and are chosen for demonstrated excellence of scholarship.
