Biographical history

The Calgary Institute for the Humanities was established as a university-level research institute at the University of Calgary in 1976. The Institute is responsible to the Vice-President (Research). It fosters advanced study and research in a broad range of subjects reflecting its multi-disciplinary and multi-faculty orientation.

The Humanities Institute supports research in traditional humanities as well as in philosophical and historical aspects of the social sciences, sciences, arts, and professional studies. The humanities are not conceived as a specific group of academic disciplines, but include all forms of study that examine what is human.

In addition to its role at the university, the Calgary Institute for the Humanities encourages humanistic study outside of the university and dialogue between the academic community and the general public. Programs of the Institute include fellowship appointments, independent research initiatives by university faculty, strategic research projects, and community partnerships.
