When the Canadian Historical Association was founded in 1922, there was little distinction between community-based historical societies and historians in the country’s universities, archives and museums. In the twentieth century, interest in history spread, with the citizen practice of history attracting the interest of thousands of Canadians, while at the same time the development of the professionalization of history as an academic discipline had the effect of loosening the initial links. The panel will examine the role of historical societies in producing new historical knowledge and in educating Canadians about the past. It will also look at how we can build a stronger link between associations of professional historians, citizen historians and heritage organizations.

Thursday 16 February 2003
