Culture and Society



Building inclusive and resilient communities

Research in the humanities, social sciences and arts helps to illuminate our understanding of the world around us and guide us toward solutions to some of society's most pressing challenges.

Dalhousie researchers ask bold and challenging questions about society. How does social justice define what we do? How can digital media be harnessed to create community? What can we do to amplify marginalized voices? In asking, our researchers are amplifying diverse voices and concerns, informing public policy and helping to build resilient communities.
