Political History Group

The Political History Group (PHG) aims to promote and support research in political history and the study of political history in Canada .  It considers “political history” in very broad terms, and encourages the study of politics, public policy, governance, the state, political economy, political sociology, civil society, elections, foreign policy, international relations, legal history and other facets of political life from diverse theoretical and empirical approaches.  We are affiliated with the Canadian Historical Association, and our members include graduate students, professors and other scholars and public historians interested in political issues.

The PHG awards many prizes including:

The Best Book Prize prize is awarded for an outstanding, well-written book judged to have made an original, significant, and meritorious contribution to the field of Canadian political history.
