Book Series

Every year, the Centre for Human Rights Research offers a Small Grants program to help University of Manitoba Faculty get new, interdisciplinary human rights research projects off the ground. Small grants may be used to assist in connecting you to other researchers and/or community groups, offering funding for student research assistance, providing organizational or administrative assistance, and offering start-up financial support.

University of Manitoba Press announced the formation of a new Human Rights and Social Justice Book Series in 2013.

Headed by series co-editors Adele Perry and Rhonda Hinther, the Human Rights and Social Justice series publishes work that explores the quest for social justice and the basic rights and freedoms to which all human beings are entitled, including civil, political, economic, social, collective and cultural rights. Particular emphasis is placed on works considering the denial or the realization of human rights and social justice. The series publishes books that are both academically rigorous and accessible to the public.

Adele Perry is a distinguished professor of history and women’s & gender studies at the University of Manitoba and director of the university’s Centre for Human Rights Research.

Rhonda Hinther is a history professor at Brandon University and former director of research and curation at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.


If you have any questions for the co-editors, please feel free to contact them directly at:
