Associate Professor Tim Heinmiller receives 2020 SSHRC Insight Grant

Congratulations to Associate Professor Tim Heinmiller, recipient of a 2020 Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Insight Grant.

Heinmiller, who will study “Major Policy Change in Canada,” is one of seven researchers at Brock awarded an Insight Grant from SSHRC

“SSHRC funds research projects across the social sciences and humanities, which contributes to new understandings and supports the engagement of students across disciplines,” says Associate Vice-President, Research Michelle McGinn.

“The decisions of money managers, strategies for language learners, the influence of policy changes and the work of murals. The breadth of topics funded in this round and their contributions to enhanced policies and practices is impressive. I’m also pleased to note that several projects adopt a historical lens. The lessons of the past are interesting and critically important for charting the way forward to a strong future.”

SSHRC’s Insight Grants program provides funding for three to five years for research that accomplishes a number of goals, including building knowledge and understanding, supporting new approaches to research and providing training experiences for students.
