Landscapes of Injustice is the recipient of a major federal grant! On Wednesday, August 27, 2014 Ed Holder, Minister of State for Science and Technology announced the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s $2.5 million grant over seven years for the Landscapes of Injustice research project, along with 13 other interdisciplinary projects.
