Director of HRG
Kim Nelson


Thanks for checking out the HRG. 

Just shy of its 30th birthday, (in 2019), the Humanities Research Group is a cadre of students, community members and academics dedicated to bringing ideas and debate across the disciplines of the arts and humanities, to an interdisciplinary audience of students, scholars and our greater community.


Kim Nelson assumed the role of HRG Director in July 2017. A filmmaker by training, she moved to Windsor from Vancouver in 2005 and joined the ranks at the University of Windsor in 2007.  Inspired by the work and support of colleagues and student collaborators, Kim’s research/creative practice evolved to include performance film, film theory and the philosophy of history, dubbed the Live Doc Project. Kim is excited to take on this role that she has observed performed with such aplomb ever since she arrived at UWindsor, by Stephen Pender, Antonio Rossini and, the greatest baton-passer anyone could ever ask for, Erica Stevens Abbitt.


We want you to be inspired, engaged, stimulated, challenged, informed. We want you to participate. 

The HRG wants you!
