The 79th annual meeting of the Canadian Catholic Historical Association will be held May 28—May 29, 2012 in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the Canadian Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences (May 26 – June 2, 2012).
The main Congress theme is “Crossroads: Scholarship in an Uncertain World.”
The CCHA invites proposals for scholarly papers, especially those dealing with the Congress theme as it relates to Canadian Catholic history, but papers dealing with any aspect of the history of the Catholic Church or Catholicism in Canada are also welcome. Papers presented at the conference will be eligible for consideration for publication in the CCHA’s annual peer-reviewed journal, Historical Studies. A limited number of travel subsidies will be available for graduate students presenting papers.
Proposals for either individual papers or entire sessions or round tables of two or three related papers are welcome. For individual papers, please submit a maximum 250-word proposal and a one-page curriculum vitae. For panels or roundtable sessions, please send a maximum one-page proposal for the entire session and curriculum vitae for each participant. Papers suitable to be presented in a joint session with the CSCH (Canadian Society for Church History) or CHA (Canadian Historical Association) are also welcome. Curriculum vitae should include email and postal addresses. Note: Please provide information about audiovisual services required for the presentation.
Prospective presenters are encouraged to become members of the CCHA; student memberships are available. Additional information about past conferences, membership, publications, etc., is available at the Canadian Catholic Historical Association’s website: cchahistory.ca.
Information about Congress 2012 will be available on the Congress 2012 website, www.congress2012.ca
Please send proposals by email before 20 January 2012 to:
Dr. Jacqueline Gresko (CCHA President and Program Chair) firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if you are unable to present a paper this year, we hope you will plan to attend the CCHA conference in Waterloo.
