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.
Key elements of the 2021 Canadian Historical Association/Société historique du Canada (CHA/SHC) annual meeting were announced in July, including the decision by local organizers to delay the call for papers until more information was available about the format for the 2021 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
The Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences and the University of Alberta will announce the format for Congress 2021 in early November (on-line, in-person, or a hybrid). It is not yet clear when there will be details on specifics: how presentations will take place; how audiences will convene for discussion; and how other important aspects of Congress will play out.
We will release a CHA/SHC call for papers in mid-November. The call will reflect all information about conference format available at that time. Further information will be conveyed to potential conference participants as it becomes available. At this point, we anticipate a mid-December deadline for paper proposals. The themes for 2021 were announced in volume 3, issue 2 of Intersections.
In spring 2020, we committed to honouring acceptances for the cancelled 2020 CHA/SHC annual meeting. At this time, we would like to invite accepted 2020 presenters to indicate their intentions via this form. 2020 presenters confirming for 2021 should plan to deliver the presentation they would have given in 2020 or a presentation that represents a direct evolution of that work. Presenters accepted for 2020 who would like to share different work at the 2021 conference should participate in the standard submission process. Individuals will be limited to one presentation at the 2021 CHA/SHC annual meetings, meaning they should not indicate their intention to present their 2020 work and also propose a new paper. The deadline for accepted 2020 presenters to indicate their 2021 intentions is 7 December. If confirmation is not received by that date, it will be assumed that presenters are declining to capitalize on their 2020 acceptance. While we will strive to preserve 2020 panels, please be advised it may be necessary to make adjustments.
For further information, please contact local organizers James Muir and Shannon Stunden Bower at email@example.com.
