CALL FOR PAPERS
Canadian Society of Church History
Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences
Wednesday 31 May – Friday 2 June 2017
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 CSCH invites proposals for session themes, panel discussions and papers from scholars working in the area of the history of Christianity in Canada, as well as the history of Christianity in other times and places. Proposals may (or may not) address the theme for Congress 2017 “Far and Wide” by exploring the role of Confederation on Canadian churches and/or topics related to Canadian nationalism from national and international perspectives. 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 either by mail or e-mail to:
Dr. James Robertson
Department of History Tyndale Seminary
Proposals are due by Friday 27 January 2017. Please note that presenters are required to be members of the Society.
