We are delighted to announce that The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) has awarded $62,745 to Michael Frishkopf (University of Alberta) and Marcia Ostashewski (Cape Breton University) for Exhibiting Sound!

This project is facilitated through partnerships with several heritage, arts and community institutions, including museums, galleries, archives, arts organizations and cultural centres. The Connection Grants competition will fund the events “Curating Ethnomusicology,” the Canadian Society for Traditional Music’s pre-conference workshop in the digital humanities taking place at Cape Breton University, Sydney, Nova Scotia from June 15th-16th 2015, and “Exhibiting Sound,” to take place at the University of Alberta and in Edmonton galleries, museums and cultural centres from October 29th – November 1st, 2015. SSHRC Connection Grants support events and outreach activities geared toward short-term, targeted knowledge mobilization initiatives. These events and activities represent opportunities to exchange knowledge and to engage on research issues of value to those participating.
Congratulations! And our tremendous thanks to SSHRC and all of our partners.
