Interdisciplinary Research in Canada’s Capital
Carleton University is located in Ottawa, Canada — the nation’s capital. This means our researchers, across all disciplines, have close connections to Canada’s national labs and museums, Library and Archives Canada, and federal government departments and agencies.
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences’ internationally distinguished researchers cover diverse areas of inquiry ranging from the geography of the Arctic to the great religions of Asia, and from the individuality of the human personality to the universality of human expression in the arts and literature. Such research activity spans individual scholarship, collaborations with colleagues and students all across the university and in participation with dynamic FASS research centres. Carleton is a university that promotes research excellence and connectedness, and from the individual human personality to global human expression in the arts and literature.
Our faculty and students conduct research around the globe (view map): Dr. Thuy Nguyen – Vietnam, Dr. Megan Rivers-Moore – Costa Rica, Dr. Derek Mueller – Arctic, Dr. Erica Fraser – Russia and the Soviet Union, Dr. Susanne Klausen – Southern Africa, Dr. Sonya Lipsett-Rivera – Mexico, Dr. Angela Sumegi – Tibet, Dr. Audra Diptee – Jamaica.
