Call for Papers

Canadian Society of Church History

Annual Meeting

4 – 6 June 2019

University of British Columbia | Vancouver, BC


The Canadian Society of Church History (CSCH) is dedicated to promoting and encouraging research in the history of Christianity, particularly the history of Christianity in Canada. Since its founding in 1960, the Society’s annual meetings have provided a forum for historians of Christianity to present and discuss their research in a welcoming and supportive environment. The meeting is enriched by the participation of scholars at all career stages. Thus the Society encourages junior scholars (including graduate students), mid-career scholars, and senior scholars to present papers. Graduate students who present papers and are/or become members of the Society may apply for a small subsidy to help with the costs of travel, accommodation, and conference registration. The best graduate essay is eligible for the John Webster Grant- John S. Moir Graduate Essay Prize.


The 2019 CSCH Annual Meeting will take place at University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia from June 4th to 6th. The CSCH invites proposals for individual papers and panel submissions from scholars working in the area of the history of Christianity in Canada, as well as the history of Christianity in other parts of the world. The theme of Congress 2019 is “Circles of Conversation” and submissions may wish to address important conversations related to the history of Canadian churches and faith groups. Papers that stretch the boundaries of the field or that intersect with other disciplines are especially welcome.


Please submit one-page proposals and a brief one-page CV to this year’s Program Chair by e-mail:

Proposals are due by Friday 25 January 2019. Please note that presenters are required to be members of the Society. Membership information and other information about the CSCH can be found at
