2023 Call for Papers

The 2023 CSCH Annual Meeting will take place from May 30 to June 1 as part of Congress 2023 at York University in Toronto. 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 2023 is Reckonings and Re-Imaginings. We welcome submissions that explore the overarching theme of Congress as it relates to the history of Canadian churches and faith groups. We also welcome papers that stretch the boundaries of the field or that intersect with other disciplines.

Please submit one-page proposals and a brief one-page CV to the program chair by e-mail:

Dr. Melissa Davidson                csch.sche@gmail.com

Proposals are due by Friday, February 3, 2023. Please note that presenters are required to be members of the Society.


New for 2023:

Graduate students who present papers may be eligible for funding from the CSCH or through Congress. If you are a graduate student, please self-identify in your submission your registration status (full-time or part-time). Further documentation may be requested to verify eligibility.

There may also be a subsidy available through the CSCH from Congress for presenters who incur eligible extra costs for child or dependent care related to their participation at Congress.  For more information, please note your interest in this subsidy in your submission.

Congress is waiving its portion of the registration fees for Black and Indigenous students.  If you are a student who self-identifies as Black or Indigenous and have difficulty accessing this reduced fee structure when registering, please contact the Program Chair for a special link.
