The 97th annual meeting of the Canadian Historical Association will be held during the 87th annual Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Regina.  The Congress 2018 theme of ‘gathering diversities’ provides an opportunity for attendees to examine how diverse perspectives shaped and promise to transform the discipline of history. Diversities in historical inquiries, including varied temporal, geographical, and methodological approaches, are central to cultivating new perspectives and insights in the field. The program will feature presentations, lectures, joint-interdisciplinary plenaries, and public events that explore, cultivate, and critique these diversities.
The call for papers is now closed. The Committee will respond in January. Thank you to all those who submitted a proposal.
