For over four decades, TIFF has been committed to transforming the way people see the world through film. Central to this commitment is our pledge to preserve and promote Canada’s moving-image culture through educational initiatives and learning opportunities. TIFF is currently accepting applications for the 2021 Jeffrey and Sandra Lyons Canadian Film Scholarship, supporting the development of scholarship or research-creation that activates the archive. The award aims to:
- increase access to the reference and archival collections of the Film Reference Library (FRL);
- support research and research-creation that deepens knowledge about Canadian film and media;
- and strengthen the relationship between cultural and academic institutions in pursuit of knowledge mobilization.
TIFF encourages proposals from scholars, researcher-creators, and artists whose project would benefit from the unique collections of the FRL. Applications were previously accepted from MA, PhD, and post-doc students exclusively. In recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of film and media research, and the diversity of methodological approaches within the field, we have expanded the eligibility requirements to include those enrolled in any master’s program who are pursuing related research.
This Scholarship provides the recipient access to the extensive resources and collections of the FRL for one month between October 2021 and May 2022. On-site access to research materials will be conducted safely and in line with COVID-19 protocols. Digital research may be possible, depending on the Special Collection and the research material requested. The successful applicant will be provided with a stipend of $1,000 CAD, a designated office space, and access to the FRL’s collections in support of their research. Special Collections of particular interest include the archives of experimental filmmaker Mike Hoolboom; the Conquering Lion Pictures Archive of materials related to the works of filmmakers Clement Virgo and Damon D’Oliveira; the Deepa Mehta Archive; the Christopher Chapman archive; and the archives of score composer Christopher Dedrick.
The FRL is the ultimate free resource for filmmakers, students, researchers, screenwriters, and film and television professionals. A proud affiliate member of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF), the FRL is dedicated to the preservation of Canada’s cinematic history, maintaining extensive archival and research collections with a focus on Canadian cinema.

CARNEGIE APPOINTMENT IN HUMANITIES AND COMPUTING – DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY

The successful candidate will teach 2 courses per year in FCS: 1 section each of CSCI 1800 (Computing and Society in History) and CSCI 1801 (Case Studies in Computing and Society) OR 2 sections of either class, with each section having an enrolment of up to 250 students. The faculty member will also have further annual teaching duties in FASS and/or HOST, to be confirmed at time of appointment based upon the teaching load of the chosen FASS home department. A 1 course release will be granted for serving as course director of CSCI 1800 and 1801. This position is a Carnegie appointment, meaning that the colleague will be a member of King’s Faculty rather than of the Dalhousie Faculty Association and will be expected to contribute to the administration of King’s as well as of Dalhousie. The appointment is intended to further a meaningful exchange of ideas and expertise in Humanities and Computing across King’s and Dalhousie, and to ensure that the new colleague has a strong community of support. The new colleague’s home for research purposes, including funding, grant application support, conference travel, etc., will be in FASS and King’s as per existing Carnegie appointment practices, but they will be encouraged to form research collaborations and connections with colleagues in the Faculty of Computer Science as well as with HOST and FASS colleagues. At Dalhousie, their main administrative home will be in FASS, but they may also be expected to contribute to administration within the Faculty of Computer Science: for example, by serving as a FASS representative on relevant FCS committees.
A record of, or demonstrated potential for, excellence in teaching and research in Humanities and Computing (broadly construed) and specific competency in areas relevant to the History of Science and Technology is required. A record of publication will be an asset. Applicants must have in hand, by the start date of the appointment, a Ph.D. in a field appropriate for appointment in a FASS department (see list at https://www.dal.ca/faculty/arts/departments.html).
