2006 Nathalie Des Rosiers Audacity of Imagination Award

The Law Commission of Canada and the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences are pleased to announce the 2006 Nathalie Des Rosiers Audacity of Imagination Award competition.

The Nathalie Des Rosiers Audacity of Imagination Award is for graduate students who are actively engaged in original and innovative research in pursuit of masters or doctoral degrees in law or the social sciences and humanities. The partnering agencies invite graduate students to submit proposals for research papers for presentation (in draft form) at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, June 2, 2006, at York University, Toronto, Ontario.

The theme for the 2006 Nathalie Des Rosiers Audacity of Imagination competition is, "Diverse Cities, Cultural Practices and the Law."

The co-sponsors will select up to six proposals. The award will consist, first, of an honorarium of $2000 to produce the paper. In addition, the award comprises expenses incurred in travelling to Toronto, Ontario to present the paper as a work in progress; registration fees for the Congress; two nights' hotel accommodation at the meeting site; airfare and ground transportation, as required.
