Jackman Humanities Institute (JHI)
University of Toronto
The Jackman Humanities Institute advances scholarship at the University of Toronto by creating new networks - both physical and virtual - for interaction among humanities scholars, regardless of their discipline.
By offering a variety of ways for students and faculty from the University of Toronto's three campuses to learn from each other, as well as from visiting scholars, the Jackman Humanities Institute is developing new interdisciplinary modes of understanding human experience.
The Institute is a community of research and study. It is a portal to the Humanities at the University of Toronto, coordinating ongoing humanities activities, and hosting initiatives such as weekly seminars and international conferences.
The Institute's activities provide both graduate and undergraduate students with opportunities for one on one interaction with world-renowned humanists. In its focus on collaborative scholarship across academic boundaries, the Jackman Humanities Institute is designed to stimulate interaction among scholars, providing further impetus for innovative teaching and research projects. Through its breadth and inclusiveness, the Institute promotes the University of Toronto's participation as a leader in the humanities.
