In science:

For example, York’s correction of Hawking’s canonical ensemble treatment of the stability of a black hole in a radiation cavity is evidently the correct way to evaluate the canonical ensemble where a temperature is fixed at the boundary surface at finite radius.
Time and Entropy from Semi-classical Tunneling of the Cosmological Scale Function
In such case the particle horizon limits the region which could be effected by the black hole and there the temperature is indeed fixed at the surface of the particle horizon, producing a finite region of space inside of which the black hole could be found in a stable canonical ensemble.

Moniz, Canonical Quantization of Black-Holes in N=2 Supergravity, work in progress.
Supersymmetric Quantum Cosmology --- Shaken not stirred
Primordial (matter-free) dilatonic black holes are canonically quantized in .
Dirac Constraint Quantization of a Dilatonic Model of Gravitational Collapse
If one instead computes the entropy of the canonical ensemble, I believe—as Frolov himself first argued—that the extra terms arising from the non-minimal couplings are produced as a result of the variation of the black hole mass as a function of the temperature of the ensemble.
Black Hole Thermodynamics Today
Hans Kastrup also discussed his ideas for studying the entropy of black holes by first canonically quantizing the (3+1) Schwarzschild metric in a certain way and then relating the resulting states to the Ising droplet nucleation model in 2 dimensions.

The canonical quantization of black holes in particular and of spherically symmetric gravity more generally was discussed in some depth by John Friedman.

Summary of GR15 Session D1(1), Quantum General Relativity
They started with a formal, functional integral expression for the canonical ensemble10 partition function in Euclidean quantum gravity and evaluated it for a black hole in the “zero loop” (i.e, classical) approximation.
The Thermodynamics of Black Holes
Uglam, “Black Hole Entropy in Canonical Quantum Gravity and Superstring Theory”, Phys.
The Thermodynamics of Black Holes
Given a black hole horizon one can think of the area of the horizon as being a consequence of a large number of spin network edges puncturing the surface. (For a detailed account of black hole entropy in canonical quantum gravity see [5, 6, 7, 8, 9].
Quasinormal Modes, the Area Spectrum, and Black Hole Entropy
In canonical quantum gravity the area of a macroscopically large black hole arises through a large number of intersection of the black horizon surface with spin network edges with the same low spin jmin .
Quasinormal Modes, the Area Spectrum, and Black Hole Entropy
The treatment of black holes in canonical quantum gravity is so far confined to non-rotating black holes.
Quasinormal Modes, the Area Spectrum, and Black Hole Entropy
Note that when the chemical potential is zero, the black hole becomes uncharged and static, and one can work with the canonical ensemble.
Tomograms of Spinning Black Holes
In the canonical ensemble, one expects to see static black holes, so it is perhaps natural that the Cauchy horizon looks like a singularity.
