Annual Meeting

The CHA hosts an annual meeting in May/June in coordination with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences which is held in a different Canadian city each year. Between 350-500 historians gather to share their research on themes representing the full diversity of the discipline and to network with colleagues. Presenters must be members of the society. The CHA offers travel grants to allow students and the precariously employed to attend the annual meeting.

Reconsidering History

The Program

Canadian Historical Association’s 100th Anniversary Meeting
May 16-18 2022

The Canadian Historical Association offices are located on the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg People as is the virtual platform that we are using to host this conference.  But we come together on-line from many different territories, all of which have experienced the effects of colonization.  We encourage all participants to take a moment to acknowledge the Indigenous Peoples on whose land they live, work and play.

Many thanks to our sponsors for their support. Click on the logos to find out more about them.
