Research in the Faculty of Arts

The Faculty of Arts is a vibrant community of scholars and students active in research, scholarship, and teaching across more than 20 departments and programs in the social sciences and humanities. We regard the creation of new knowledge through research, scholarship, and creative endeavours, and the sharing of these insights as the central mission of our faculty. Like that of the liberal arts more generally, our goal has always been to generate insights into the many important questions confronting humanity and to generate new knowledge and ideas that inform and enrich our students, scholarly communities and our world.

The Faculty of Arts is home to some 126 tenured faculty members – some of the brightest academic minds, researching in innovative new directions. We have globally renowned and award-winning experts disseminating their findings in areas such as anxiety, pain and stress; climate change and the environment; social justice and community safety; and society, politics and identities – just to name a few.
