Centre for Research in Cultural Studies (CRiCS)


Cultural Studies engages with pressing issues of local and global consequence and is at the forefront of developing critical understandings of the social and political dynamics of contemporary culture. Established in 2017, the Centre for Research in Cultural Studies (CRiCS) enhances UWinnipeg’s ability to highlight these engagements and functions as a hub for interdisciplinary collaboration between students, faculty, and community research partners.

CRiCS increases research capacity on campus by providing a context for developing methods and tools for Cultural Studies research, supporting the program of the Canada Research Chair in Culture and Public Memory, and connecting student Research Assistants, Research Associates, Visiting Scholars, and Postdoctoral Fellows to the projects of the Centre. CRiCS aims to build sustainable, socially relevant research programs and raise the national and international profile of UWinnipeg as an outstanding place to do Cultural Studies research.

CRiCS shares space with the Centre for Research in Young People's Texts and Cultures (CRYTC). It is located in room 3C25 at the University of Winnipeg, on the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
