The aim of the International Centre for Interdisciplinarity Research in the Human Sciences (ICIRHS) is to facilitate and nurture interdisciplinary research on human beings from a socio-cultural dimension. The Centre uses interdisciplinarity as the tool or method for conducting analysis and research. The Centre is a meeting place for researchers, students and faculty members alike where they can engage in the understanding, development and transformation of socio-cultural dynamics. The Centre also promotes dialogue and research among specialists working in the fields of social sciences and humanities throughout Ontario, elsewhere in Canada and around the world.
ICIRHS is associated with Laurentian's PhD program in Human Studies. Students and candidates from this program are automatically ICIRHS’ members.
