The 74th annual meeting of the Canadian Catholic Historical Association will be held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, 2-3 June 2008 in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the Canadian Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences (May 31-June 8). We will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Association in 1933.
The main Congress theme is “Thinking Beyond Borders --Global Ideas: Global Values.”
The CCHA invites proposals for scholarly papers dealing with the Congress theme as it relates to Canadian Catholic history or with any aspect of the history of the Catholic Church or Catholicism in Canada for presentation. 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: www.umanitoba.ca/colleges/st_pauls/ccha/studies.html>
