Research Support Programming

Dr. Amy Ratelle joined the Jackman Humanities Institute as a Strategic Research Development Officer in August 2021 to support researchers in the Humanities and qualitative Social Sciences across the tri-campus. She develops dedicated experiential workshops and programming support organized around five key areas:

  1. External funding applications
  2. Early career support
  3. Publication support
  4. Fostering research collaborations across disciplines and other models of community engagement
  5. Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Accordingly, in 2022-23 a full 50% of JHI programming was organized around research support as broadly construed (including publication support and dedicated support for early career researchers), with nearly 30% dedicated to research funding (around the SSHRC Insight program and Partnership suite), and 21% around collaborative connections, with in-person events. Dr. Ratelle also provides dedicated support to the annual JHI Circle of Fellows.
