CMF Assistant Professor Jessalynn Keller spoke about her current research project on political activism in Teen Vogue on Vancouver's Roundhouse Radio show, Sense of Place. 

CMF's PhD candidate AnneMarie Dorland, a Finalist of this year's #SSHRCStorytellers is the winner of the competition's 2017 Engagement Prize!

The award was evaluated by the fellow storytellers and the judges, and is given to the Top 25 Storyteller who best connects social sciences research and their own research study with the larger community. AnneMarie was selected based on her work connecting the Doing Design Thinking study with the University itself (through blog posts, guest posts for UToday and twitter engagement) and with the classroom (by integrating the findings from the study into teaching in COMS 383, and by using the SSHRC Storytellers videos as teaching tools in the classroom).

Dr. Barbara Schneider's research project, Hearing [our] Voices, will be featured as a poster exhibition during Empathy Week, an initiative curated by Humainologie, a division of the Calgary Centre for Global Community. 

Hearing [our] Voices: Dilemmas of Care and Control

"Graphic poster exhibition created by people with schizophrenia that addresses care and control in their relationships with medical and housing service providers."

May 29th - June 2nd, 6.00AM – 6.00PM daily
City of Calgary Municipal Complex Atrium
