Canadian Committee on the History of Sexuality

Welcome to the homepage of the Canadian Committee on the History of Sexuality (CCHS). Established in 1996, the Canadian Committee on the History of Sexuality is an affiliated committee of the Canadian Historical Association (CHA-SHC). The aim of the CCHS is to provide an organizational focus within the Canadian historical profession for all those who are researching, writing, teaching, and otherwise interested in the historical study of sexuality.

The Committee sponsors sessions at CHA annual meetings. We also award a biennial prize for best article in the field. The CCHS connects scholars from all parts of the country and promotes the study of sexuality as an integral aspect of the Canadian past.

Our website includes resources for the study of sexuality, including archives, history projects, and research guides.

CCHS Co-chairs:
Patrizia Gentile, Women's and Gender Studies/History, Carleton University
Steven Maynard, History, Queen's University
