Annual Meeting

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.

The CHA Annual Meeting has been cancelled

     Cancelled Program
2020 Program CoverThe CHA Council made the difficult decision to cancel the annual meeting, originally scheduled to take place during Congress at Western University in early June.  In reaching this decision, we listened to our members as well as to the position taken by other Associations, and weighed a number of alternative ways of moving forward, including participating in the on-line Congress now being planned, or mounting our own CHA on-line conference.  In the end, we decided that there remain enough obstacles and uncertainties to make cancellation the most realistic option.

The Federation of the Social Sciences and Humanities is arranging an on-line conference to take the place of the traditional in-person meeting.  From our perspective, however, this was not a viable option for the CHA.  The cost to members, the awkwardness of the on-line platform, the difficulty of shifting what was designed to be an in-person conference to a virtual conference, the inability of presenters to complete the work required to prepare their presentations, and the continuing uncertainty of what life will be like in Canada and around the world in early June, all factored into our decision.

For these reasons as well, we have chosen not to host our own on-line conference.  Designing an on-line program when members are working remotely, and juggling family internet usage and health issues in isolation, is far from an ideal situation. Although we remain committed to exploring ways that CHA members can meet virtually and present ideas on-line, these are avenues that were always designed to augment, not replace, the annual in-person conference. 

Some of the work that would normally happen at Congress will need to be done virtually, and in time members will receive notification of the Annual General Meeting and the election results.  Our prizes will also be awarded – watch our website for more details in the coming weeks on these and other issues.

These are extraordinary times.  Every one of our members is affected by the global pandemic.  For now, historians will take a break, even as history marches forward.
