Program Description

As marginalized and colonized populations seek recognition for losses and celebrate cultural resilience and survival in the face of adversity, they are challenging longstanding narratives about the past. Contested cultural and historical narratives can reinforce communal tensions and lead to alienation, denialism and marginalization. However, these narratives and their impacts can also change over time as they are challenged and shaped through personal experiences, education, arts and literature, cross-cultural engagements and changing political and economic contexts.


This Knowledge Synthesis Grants funding opportunity is guided by the following questions:

  1. Drawing on domestic, international and/or cross-sectoral evidence, what can researchers tell us about these issues?
  2. How might the findings guide public policy, practice and research agendas for Canada (StreamĀ 1) or Canada and/or the UK (StreamĀ 2) in the immediate and long term?
