Within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), there exist a large number of research groups, networks, and initiatives. The activities of these groups range from regular paper discussions to full fledged research projects, but all contribute to the depth and wide range of interdisciplinary research in the Faculty of HSS at Memorial. The Nexus Centre hopes to support and work collaboratively with as many interdisciplinary research networks as possible at Memorial, helping to further develop an interactive research culture within the Faculty of HSS.
