2017 was intended to be a year of celebrating Canada. However, in the midst of controversies like CBC’s The Story of Us and the debate over the “appropriation prize” in Canadian literature, it is clear that older and more traditional narratives and approaches are no longer sufficient or even acceptable.
In the spirit of celebrating inclusivity and diversity, and following in the footsteps of the Public Archaeology Twitter Conference and the World Seabird Twitter Conference, Active History, Unwritten Histories, and Canada’s History Society are proud to announce the first-ever Canadian History Twitter Conference, “Beyond 150: Telling Our Stories”.
This event is designed to encourage collaboration, public engagement, and spark discussion about Canada’s history in a way that is accessible to everyone. It also aims to uplift diverse perspectives, unrepresented histories, and support the work of early-career and emerging scholars.
While this is a history conference, this platform is open to anyone (inside and outside academia) engaged in Canadian history, including, but not limited to: academic historians, public historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, museum curators, archivists, and genealogists.
