Call for proposals

Loyola College Working Group
Calls for Proposal go out for different CISSC initiatives throughout the year. Please find below a list of those initiatives, and information regarding application procedures as well as deadlines. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us

If you have an idea for a public lecture, exhibition, workshop or symposium, the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture (CISSC) would like to help make your event happen. The one condition is that the happening contribute to the expansion of interdisciplinary studies at Concordia by appealing to a super-departmental audience.

Applications are invited from individual full-time faculty members in the Faculty of Arts and Science and the Faculty of Fine Arts, and may also be on behalf of a working group, research team or other research unit.

CISSC may contribute $300, $600, $1200 or $1800 to your happening. Proposals, using the CISSC Happenings Proposal Form (below), will be accepted throughout the year. There are no deadlines. However, if you want to use the CISSC contribution as matching funds for purposes of an application to the Aid to Research-Related Events (ARRE) program run by the Office of the Vice-President Research and Graduate Studies, or a SSHRC Connections grant, then please allow two weeks. Note: Each faculty has its own internal deadlines for applications to the ARRE (twice per year) or Connections grant program (four times per year). Please check with your faculty research facilitator.

All applications are reviewed by the CISSC Steering Committee. Criteria include academic or artistic stature of the invited speaker, interest of the topic and potential contribution to the advancement of interdisciplinary studies at Concordia. Eligible expenses may include such items as airfare, local transportation and meals (alcohol is not reimbursable) and honoraria. 

Applications for CISSC Happenings are received and reviewed on a rolling basis. Please contact us any time.
