Very proud to be supported by SSHRC for my doctorate in Paris. “SSHRC’s investment in research is a demonstration of our commitment to supporting the high-calibre students of today and the change-makers of tomorrow. Their research findings and insights will be critical to making sense of the evolving world around us and will help guide governments and citizens’ behaviours and actions as we work toward a better future for all of society.”
