The Institute is proud that most, if not all, of our events are free, open, and accessible to the public. This is made possible due to an initial bequest establishing an endowment by Dr. Jennifer Simons and The Simons Foundation at the Institute's inception over three decades ago. The Institute also benefits from the continuing support of the Department of Humanities and J.S. Woodsworth Chair in the Humanities.
