A message from the Academic Convenor
As the Academic Convenor of Congress 2016, I am pleased to invite you to join with the University of Calgary as we celebrate our fiftieth anniversary. With “Energizing Communities” as the theme of this year’s Congress we hope to inspire attendees to consider the myriad ways that research in the social sciences and the humanities serves as a spur for social innovation locally, nationally and internationally. We hope that you will avail yourselves of the many cultural activities taking place across campus, around the city, and across the region during Congress. We are planning an event that will celebrate all that we have accomplished in our first five decades, while also keeping our eyes on new scholarly horizons. We look forward to seeing you here in Calgary!
