Congress 2019, in association with the Annual CCHA Conference, is being held in 2019 at St. Mark’s College at the University of British Columbia. Unrivaled in scope and impact, the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the convergence of over 70 scholarly associations, each holding their annual conference under one umbrella.
Now in its 87th year, this flagship event is much more than Canada’s largest gathering of scholars across disciplines. Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape the Canada of tomorrow.
The CCHA Annual Meeting will be held Wednesday June 5 and Thursday June 6, 2019.
Call for Papers for the 86th Annual Meeting of the CANADIAN CATHOLIC HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION (CCHA) will be held at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, BC) on Wednesday, June 5 to Thursday, June 6, 2019 in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (June 1 to June 7, 2019).
The theme for Congress 2019 is “Circles of Conversation.”
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 presentedat 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 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 memberships are available. Additional information about past conferences, membership, publications, etc., is available at the Canadian Catholic Historical Association’s website:www.cchahistory.ca.
