Town hall with SSHRC President Dr. Ted Hewitt

President Vianne Timmons is hosting virtual hour-long town hall with Dr. Ted Hewitt, president of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 11:30 a.m.

Memorial researchers, research administration staff and postdoctoral fellows are invited to attend.

Joining Drs. Timmons and Hewitt will be Dr. Neil Bose, vice-president (research) and Dr. Tana Allen, associate dean (research), Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, who is also Memorial’s SSHRC Leader.

Participants will meet Dr. Hewitt, who will provide an overview and update on what is new at SSHRC.

The town hall will also provide Dr. Hewitt an opportunity to interact with Memorial leaders and researchers, gain a sense of how faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows are doing, get feedback from the university community on how the pandemic has effected researchers and their activities and get a better understanding of the priorities of Memorial researchers going forward.

Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their perspectives. Questions may be submitted in advance via email to president@mun.ca (please use subject line SSHRC Town Hall) or live via the Q&A function. If audience members would like to appear on screen to interact directly with Drs. Hewitt and Timmons, that can be arranged during the event through the Q&A function.

Members of the Memorial community who plan on attending this event should visit here to enrol in the course called “SSHRC Town Hall.”

The link, which requires your MUN Login, will automatically enrol you and take you to the course site in Brightspace. This can be done at any point between now and the event start time.

On Feb. 11, return to Brightspace prior to the 11:30 a.m. start time to join the event. There will be two options for joining the forum: a Webex link that will allow you to ask questions and join the conversation or a view-only YouTube stream for those who want to watch the event but not actively participate.

Please note the Webex event is limited to 1,000 participants. If that number is reached, all additional attendees will be directed to the view-only stream.

For those who cannot attend the live event on Feb. 11, it will be archived and available at a later date.
