Congress 2023- Reckonings & Re-imaginings

Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is Canada’s largest gathering of academics, and one of the largest in the world. It’s a place to hold critical conversations of our time, hear from a diverse set of voices, share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships to help shape the Canada of tomorrow. Congress 2023 will take place at York’s Keele and Glendon Campuses in Toronto from May 27 to June 2. Nearly 8,000 scholars, graduate students, and practitioners in the humanities and social sciences (HSS) will come together and share their research.

We invite you to attend the various presentations that Glendon professors will be offering at the Congress.
