Presented by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Big Thinking lecture series is committed to bringing big ideas in the humanities and social sciences to new audiences – creating opportunities for researchers to challenge and inspire policy makers, citizens, academics, students and community members on the critical questions of our time.
Big Thinking on the Hill‘s audience consists of MPs, senators, policymakers, and members of the public. Big Thinking at Congress takes place at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, which brings together academics, researchers, policy makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow.
