Embracing the humanities

Jack and Doris Shadbolt exemplified a vision of the humanities and arts whereby the work of the artist was seen as integrated into the natural and social worlds the artist inhabited.

Steering Committee

The stated goal of the Jack and Doris Shadbolt Endowment for the Humanities supporting the Jack and Doris Shadbolt Fellows in the Humanities is “to support resident Fellows who will be free to perform, create, research and otherwise interact with faculty and students on professional activities to enhance not only their own intellectual and creative horizons but that of the university and wider community as well.”

This goal will be met through the appointment of Fellows, and the support and promotion of the Fellows’ activities while in residence, which may include, but are not limited to, teaching, research, and community and public outreach.

For 2020–2021, the Shadbolt for the Humanities Fellowship Steering Committee is comprised of:

  • Dr. Jane Pulkingham, Dean, Ex-officio
  • Dr. Mary-Ellen Kelm, Associate Dean, Research
  • Dr. Stephen Collis, Fellowship Program Coordinator
  • Dr. Emily O'Brien, associate professor, History
  • Dr. Jane Friesen, associate professor, Economics
  • Corrine Hunt
  • Elisa Ferreira, Fellowship Administrative Coordinator
