The CHA's Rethinking History in Canada Roundtable Series

Published on March 29, 2022

To mark the CHA’s centenary, we have organized an ambitious 3-part programme that will offer a space of sustained reflection on our discipline’s past, present, and future. A committee, headed by Dr. Allyson Stevenson, has planned a round-table series for the Winter Term to kick off our “Rethinking History in Canada” 100th Anniversary programming.  The round-table series will consist of three webinars focusing on the themes of Women, Gender & Sexuality, Indigenous Experiences/Decolonization, and BIPOC Experiences.  In this series, presenters have been invited to speak about their experiences in the profession, association, undertaking their research or other topics of their choosing in relation to these themes. We have envisioned this as an opportunity for honest, critical conversations. This is part of the CHA’s wider effort to step-back, to consider issues of structures of power and exclusion within the profession.  

The third, and final, webinar in the series – BIPOC Experiences is on Monday, April 4th from 2:00 - 3:30pm EST.

Chair: Claudine Bonner
Participants: Harvey Amani Whitfield, Daniel Sims, Afua Cooper, Barrington Walker, Twisha Singh, Cheryl Thompson.                

Registration (free) to attend the webinar is now open
