The annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the convergence of approximately 70 scholarly associations, each holding their annual conference under one umbrella. Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and collaborate. The 2016 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is an initiative of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and is this year hosted by the University of Calgary.
