Intersections offers news and comment on matters of interest to professional historians in Canada. Published three times a year, it is available online and also distributed by mail to CHA members. The editor of Intersections are Matthew Bellamy and Jean-Philippe Warren. We welcome your submissions to Intersections. If you have additional questions about submissions, please do not hesitate to contact the French-language and English-language editors.

The deadlines for submissions are 1 March,  1 July  and 1 October. All submissions for Intersections should be sent directly to both editors, if possible, or to the CHA office, cha-shc@cha-shc.ca. Typically, Intersections is published a few weeks after the deadline – this allows for translation and other delays. Intersections is placed online on the CHA website at the time of the publication of the next number. Past issues of Intersections are made available to the public on our website. Copyright is held by the CHA.

All submissions should be carefully edited before they are sent to the editors. Spellings of all proper names should be checked. Light copy editing may be done by the editors, but all Intersections submissions are expected to arrive in print ready condition. The editors may wish to reduce the length of a submission in consultation with the author.

All submissions should include the full name of the author, their institutional affiliation (if any), and contact information including telephone number.

ARTICLES

Articles are normally about 800 words in length but longer or shorter articles are accepted. A journalistic style is preferred with few, if any, footnotes.

Intersections is first and foremost the newsletter of the CHA bringing you information about the association’s activities. This includes reports and updates from CHA council members and everything related to the annual conference and general meeting. In addition, we seek to publish articles on a broad range of subjects of interest to practicing historians in Canada. Unusual research projects, controversies in public history or thoughtful reviews of museum exhibits, historic sites or any other place that might be of interest to our membership, could provide the basis for a great article for Intersections. We welcome your ideas.

Currently, we have two feature columns that appear in every issue. These are: History on the Web and a column prepared by the Graduate Student Liaison. Would you like to be a columnist for Intersections?

OBITUARIES

Obituaries are accepted for any historian (academic, public or other) that spent his or her working life in Canada, for historians outside of Canada whose work dealt in some respect with Canadian topics, and former members of the CHA.

Obituaries should be less than 800 words in length and focus on the professional life of the individual. The author or source must be identified. Photographs are welcome and should be in a conventional digital format such as jpeg. Please provide a photo credit.

OTHER ITEMS

We regularly print calls for papers, information for upcoming conferences, and report new exhibits at museums, universities and historic sites. Please send your information directly to the editors. Some of this information may also be posted on the website.

We annually publish an issue focusing on history departments at universities and colleges across the country. “News from the Field” is collected in the fall through request made to chairs of departments.

ILLUSTRATIONS

Only photographs and images for which copyright has been obtained can be used. Authors who submit photographs, etc. must have approvals in advance. All should be sent electronically in a digital format.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS - ISSUE #5.2  

Resistance to/in War

Started in February 2022, the war in Ukraine has moved all Canadians.

For historians, it has been an opportunity to revisit the causes and consequences of full-fledged wars, but also military repressions, civil uprisings, terrorist attacks, and other open or subterranean conflicts that have marked the development of nations. As historians have aptly underscored quoting Mark Twain, history never repeats itself, but sometimes rhymes.

War is obviously a multifaceted phenomenon. In their studies, historians have considered its every dimension, from logistic to propaganda, from tactics to gender issues, and from geopolitics to human and social tolls.

The next issue of Intersections is dedicated to expanding this conversation by looking at how populations have resisted to/in wars. Among other possible items, the issue is interested in :

  • Peace movements.
  • Civil disobedience.
  • Critique of ‘war mongering’ discourses.
  • Peace keeping actions.
  • Solidarity-building in war zones.
  • Active resistance to military/political occupation.
  • Etc.

All topics of interest are accepted, no matter the geographic location and the historical period.

The special issue has three purposes:

  • To widen the scope of our historical knowledge (Canadian or foreign).
  • To appreciate better the vast spectrum of research conducted by historians nationwide.
  • To serve as a pedagogical tool in high school, cegep, and university classes.

The submitted work should include:

  • A short text (800 words) analyzing resistance to/in wars in the past (Canadian or foreign) – 600 words or so if you have an accompanying image. Please note that the word count limit is firm and must not be exceeded.
  • You may include a copyright-free image that could act as a teaser of sort to get readers’ attention (non compulsory).
  • A short bibliography with 4-5 references (non compulsory).
  • A two-line bio.

The deadline for submission is 1 July 2022.

Submissions have to be sent to the CHA office, cha-shc@cha-shc.ca. They should include the full name of the author, and contact information.
