Scholars-in-Residence Program @ Victoria College

Jackman SIR banner

Scholars-in-Residence (SiR) is an intensive 4-week residency in interdiciplinary humanities and humanistic social-science research for upper-year undergraduates. It provides students with an opportunity to acquire advanced research skills and experience while collaborating with an interdisciplinary and intellectually vibrant community of peers, professors, and research professionals. Students selected for SiR will live in residence May 1-26, 2017 and work in small teams on one of 10 research projects, each led by a professor. Students share meals and group activities including multidisciplinary workshops on research methodologies, standards, protocol, and professional communication; excursions to archives, museums, and cultural events; and talks featuring professionals such as lawyers, policy-makers, and documentary filmmakers that highlight research-intensive career trajectories. Eligible students must apply by 8 February 2017 and be selected to work on one of the projects (see project descriptions below). Scholars-in-Residence is a research community supported by the Jackman Humanities Institute and the Colleges of the University of Toronto.
