  18. 18. From “Up and Coming” to “Arrived” ● “Targeted intensity” ● “Historical commitment to concentration and selectivity” ● “Up-and-coming” ● “Most promising” ● “Most underrated” ● “Punches above weight”
  19. 19. From “Up and Coming” to “Arrived” ● “Targeted intensity” ● “Historical commitment to concentration and selectivity” ● “Up-and-coming” ● “Most promising” ● “Most underrated” ● “Punches above weight” “Our research goal is to fulfill our comprehensive mandate such that our recognition and research performance clearly place us amongst Canada's most influential universities”
  20. 20. From “Up and Coming” to “Arrived” ● “Targeted intensity” ● “Historical commitment to concentration and selectivity” ● “Remarkable” ● “Punches at weight” ● “Destination University” “Our research goal is to fulfill our comprehensive mandate such that our recognition and research performance clearly place us amongst Canada's most influential universities”
  21. 21. From “Up and Coming” to “Arrived” ● Consistent ● Broad ● Intentional ● “Remarkable” ● “Punches at weight” ● “Destination University” “Our research goal is to fulfill our comprehensive mandate such that our recognition and research performance clearly place us amongst Canada's most influential universities”
  22. 22. Things to do ● Research Advisory Committee (Regina, Brock) – Associate VPs, Deans, Directors, Chairs – Look for inefficiencies, synergies, cultivate networks – Improve hiring? Advocate for opportunities? – Maximize existing resources, expertise, time
  23. 23. Things to do ● Solve the HSS funding problem (!) – Hire more people? (Brock, Trent, St. Mary's Lakehead) – Change the way we support the Humanities—e.g. Humanities Research Institute (Regina, Brock... U of C, U of A,... UCSD, Brown, etc.)
  24. 24. Why me? ● Been interested in these issues for a long time – Transformations – CREDO – Resource for Humanities Research Stats ● Good and broad funding experience – SSHRC, CFI, Mellon, Helmsley, Moore, Sloan, Contract, spinoffs, etc. – Work a lot across boundaries: MSc/MA, Library/A&S, PLoS and OLH – “Fluent “Humanist,” L2 “scientist” and “librarian” ● Research focusses on issues – Incubator, Centre for Scholarly Comm., Digital Humanities
  25. 25. Why me? ● Lots of experience in developing community-based solutions to research infrastructure problems – Funded several times to build research-focussed communities of practice: ● PI with SSHRC and Mellon ● Co-applicant with Helmsley, Sloan, and Moore – Built several very prominent and active communities: ● Digital medievalist (digitalmedievalist.org) ● Global Outlook::Digital Humanities (globaloutlookdh.org) ● Force11 (Force11.org) ● Centre for the Study of Scholarly Communication ● Text Encoding Initiative (TEI-C.org)
