This summer, UBC is hosting Congress, June 1-7, at the Vancouver campus. Jointly organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and UBC, the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the largest interdisciplinary conference in Canada and one of the largest in the world. The annual event brings together over 70 academic associations and over 10,000 attendees, which represent a spectrum of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
To support the conference, Congress is seeking over 900 volunteers. Visit https://www.congress2019.ca/opportunities/volunteer to see the volunteer roles.
