Congress 2023 honours Guy Poirier with lifetime achievement award

Monday, June 12, 2023

At Congress 2023, our colleague Dr. Guy Poirier received the Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies Lifetime Achievement Award. This prestigious award recognizes researchers who, through their scholarly work, have made a major contribution to Renaissance studies in Canada or abroad.

The Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, known colloquially as Congress (and even more colloquially as The Learneds), is organized by the Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences. It is a convergence of scholarly associations, each holding their annual conference under one umbrella at a Canadian host university, and is Canada's largest gathering of academics.
