Welcome to the Institute for the Humanities

Now in its 30th year, the Institute for the Humanities at SFU seeks to accomplish these basic objectives: stimulate student interest and faculty research in demonstrating the irreducibility of humanistic perspectives in understanding some of the most pressing social, economic, political and environmental problems we face and, above all, to engage the many publics beyond the academy in city, the province, the country and, indeed, the wider world. The Institute is perfectly placed, therefore, to play a key role in the idea of SFU as “student-centred, research-driven and community-engaged.”

Upcoming Events:

Public Lecture: “Advertising and the End of the World”

by Professor Sut Jhally, Univ. of Massachusetts (Amherst)

Saturday, April 26 – 7 p.m. – Room 1600 – SFU Harbour Ctr.
