Graduate and Postdoctoral Fellows Symposium

McGill faculty, staff and students are invited to join past and current IPLAI graduate and postdoctoral fellows in a discussion of their work and of the public life of humanities scholarship.

Where: Thomson House Ballroom, McGill Universtiy
When: 6 February 2014, 12:30pm-3:30pm

The Institute for the Public Life of Arts and Ideas offers support to graduate and postdoctoral students through a variety of programs.  The Archie Malloch Graduate Fellowships in Public Learning, made possible through the generous support of Mrs. Janet Blachford in honour of the late Prof. Archie Malloch (Department of English), are offered annually to graduate students in the Faculties of Arts, Education, Engineering, Law, Management and Religious Studies, and the School of Music who are working on interdisciplinary projects that reflect an interest in the public orientation of IPLAI. The Stern McCord Museum Fellowship and the Fred and Betty Price Research Award, offered jointly with the McCord Museum, provide support to graduate students whose research would benefit from extended work in the McCord archives. The Stern Fellowship is offered annually to students in the Faculty of Arts and the Price Award offers summer support to students in Arts, Education, Engineering, Law, Management, Music and Religious Studies.  Early Modern Conversions and Immediations, research projects developed by IPLAI faculty researchers provide fellowship support to postdoctoral scholars in a range of disciplines.
