Humanities Matter

A humanities fair for high school students


Local high school students prove that Humanities Matter

By Kim Yates, Associate Director, Jackman Humanities Institute
2 April 2014

Toronto, ON – Students from four local high schools will be bringing projects on the theme of “Translation and Languages” to the first-ever Humanities Fair sponsored by the Jackman Humanities Institute.  This event, titled Humanities Matter, is the end result of a summer institute in July 2013 in which their teachers were participants.

Humanities Matter is designed to bring students working in multiple fields and in different schools into contact. Students will present projects in a variety of media to be adjudicated by a team of undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Toronto. The top three projects will be awarded prizes.

Humanities Matter will take place from 10:00 to 3:00 on Saturday 12 April at the Jackman Humanities Institute, 170 St. George Street, 10th floor.  The event is free and open to the public, and registration is not required.

About the Summer Institute for Teachers

The Jackman Humanities Institute (JHI) sponsors an annual one-week seminar that brings high school teachers into the classroom to study with faculty members in the humanities.  Each year’s Summer Institute is arranged on the JHI’s annual theme for the next academic year. Participants are selected by competition.
