Congratulations to Profs. Barbara Leckie and Julie Murray, who have been awarded funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada in its 2024 competitions! Prof. Leckie (along with a co-applicant from the University of Ottawa), received a Connection Grant for “Common Sense: Planetary Curriculums for a Planetary Commons.” The project will be a six-part podcast series that revives, reframes, and amplifies the idea of the commons for this moment of climate peril. Prof. Murray’s Insight Grant is for “A Literary History of ‘Women-as-Index.’” The project uses literary analysis to explore the concept of women-as-index – which is used as a metric in the policy world of gender and development – in its own terms.
