The Calgary Institute for the Humanities is delighted to offer 2019-2020 Annual Fellowship Competition for researchers. Annual Fellows will be expected to conduct their research at the Institute.
For over forty years, the Calgary Institute for the Humanities has worked to foster humanities research of the highest order, to encourage interdisciplinary conversations between scholars, and to communicate the results of Humanities research to the greater community. The humanities as traditionally conceived encompass the study of languages, literature, history, philosophy, religion and the arts. At the CIH, we take a broader approach to the humanities, to include all forms of study that illuminate what it means to be human.
