The 84th Annual Meeting of the CANADIAN CATHOLIC HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION (CCHA) will be held at Ryerson University (Toronto, Ontario) on Wednesday, May 31st to Thursday, June 1st, 2017 in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (May 27 to June 2, 2017).
The theme for Congress 2017 is “From Far and Wide: The Next 150.”
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.
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 of Church History) 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, and student
