The CHA has organised a series of webinars to provide a virtual discussion forum for historians. The hope is that the series will become a great forum of exchanges over time. 

You can see the series on the CHA YouTube Channel.

This year, the Canadian Historical Association will mark its 100th anniversary with a number of activities, conversations, and webinars, including the Annual Conference that will take place May 16-18, 2002 with up to eight concurrent sessions over three days of papers, panels and presentations to be hosted online.  The preliminary program for “Reconsidering History” is now available:


Historians at Work: Careers in History 

History PhDs are increasingly looking for and finding work outside of the traditional academic job market, but faculty are often not equipped to help them with this process.  The Committee on the Future of the History PhD in Canada is convening a seminar series to focus on job opportunities for PhD graduates.  The speakers include people who have found jobs in government, the private sector, museums and universities.  They will speak to their own journey in finding work, and tips for people looking for work in similar fields.  The seminars will be bilingual, with presenters using the language of their choice.
