The Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture (CISSC) brings together Concordia's scholars, researchers, artists and students to exchange ideas and develop interdisciplinary projects in the humanities and arts.
The Centre is also home to the interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Humanities doctoral program. Since 1973, students in the program have pursued innovative interdisciplinary research and art-based practice in areas that span the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Fine Arts.
CISSC is a member of the Consortium of Humanities Centres and Institutes. The Centre is unique in Quebec and one of a very small number of humanities centres in Canada.
The Centre sponsors innovative interdisciplinary scholarship across the Humanities and Fine Arts through regular public events and activities, including:
The Centre's working groups consist of faculty members and graduate students who meet on a regular basis in a seminar format to discuss readings or works and present work in progress.
