Tri-University History Conference: Call for Papers

Posted on Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

The 18th Annual Tri-University History Conference will be held at Wilfrid Laurier University (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) on Saturday March 3, 2012. The Tri-University Graduate History Program, one of Canada's largest and most comprehensive, unites graduate faculty and students at the University of Guelph, the University of Waterloo, and Wilfrid Laurier University. We welcome proposals for individual papers and complete panels from graduate students and established scholars in all historical fields, especially, but not exclusively, on topics concerning aspects of the circumpolar arctic.
In keeping with the theme of this year's conference,"Histories North and South," we are honoured to announce our keynote speaker Lene Kielsen Holm, from Nuuk, Greenland. As Director, Department for Sustainable Development and Research, for Greenland's delegation to the Inuit Circumpolar Council; and an award-winning researcher on the Sila-Inuk Project, Lene brings both her lived and her professional experience of traditional knowledge to her discussion of "The Importance of Inuit Knowledge in Documenting Environmental Change: Sila-Inuk, a Study of Inuit Hunters' and Fishermen's Observations about their Changing Environments."
Please submit paper abstracts (max. 250 words) with contact information to no later than 15 January 2012.
