Government of Canada invests in multidisciplinary social science and humanities research

I;m good with applied research, but it would have been nice to have included examples of research that help the imagination to soar. "Securing cross-border trucking" just doesn't do it somehow. Still, 780 awards - congrats to all.

The awards are the results of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada’s (SSHRC) 2014 Insight Grants and Insight Development Grants competitions. In total, some 780 research projects will examine a diversity of topics
