The Royal Society of Canada is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Guy Laforest, as President-Elect of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, effective June 2017. Elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 2014, Mr. Laforest is an acclaimed scholar nationally and internationally. His original approach combines the methods of political theory and of intellectual history in the study of federalism, nationalism and constitutional politics in Canada. Praised for the uniqueness of their contributions, his studies have analysed the political identity of Canada, the philosophical history of politics in Québec, as well as the understanding of the thoughts of Trudeau and Taylor. To that end, Mr. Laforest has recently published some reflections on the founding of Canada, in light of the upcoming 150th Anniversary of the Canadian Constitution of 1867.
