À propos de la conférence

“The truth about stories is that that’s all we are.” So said Thomas King in his 2003 Massey Lectures, The Truth about Stories. How we tell stories about the past shapes our lives and helps us make sense of the world. May 28 - June 1, join historians who work in museums, archives, and universities who will examine how storytelling shapes research, writing, and teaching. Sharing our passion for the past, delegates at the Canadian Historical Association meetings will explore wide-ranging topics. These stories illustrate that history matters to who we are as citizens of Canada and the world.

Événements prévus 

Is Oil a Dirty Word? Stories from the Humanities
Sunday, May 29, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., followed by a cocktail reception. 

Co-sponsored by the Canadian Historical Association, the Calgary Institute for the Humanities, and Petra Dolata, CRC in Energy History, University of Calgary 

This community event takes a quote from Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall as a starting point to discuss the many meanings of oil for people living in Calgary and Alberta. In July 2015 Wall insisted “oil is not a dirty word” nor a “four letter word.” Rather than agreeing with or contesting these contentions scholars and practitioners from the humanities will share stories of the many meanings of oil and take apart accepted understandings in order to engage the public in a more reflective and critical discussion of oil in today’s society, especially in Calgary. Chris Turner, one of Canada’s leading thinkers on sustainability, will moderate a panel of artists, activists, and academics. 

Women’s Suffrage and Social Justice 
Monday, May 30, 7:30 p.m.

Co-sponsors: Canadian Committee on Women’s History, Canadian Political Science Association, Glenbow Museum, Women’s and Gender Studies et Recherches Féministes, Faculty of Arts and History Department, University of Calgary 

This community event commemorates 100 years of women’s suffrage on the prairies and examine women’s role in electoral politics and government. Dr. Barbara Brookes, Professor of History, University of Otago, will speak on the history of the New Zealand suffrage movement to provide an international comparison for Canadian women’s suffrage. 

University of Calgary Queer History Tours 
Monday, May 30 – 31 and June 1, 12:00 p.m.

Co-sponsored by the Department of History, Faculty of Arts and Q Centre, University of Calgary 

Kevin Allen, Lead Researcher of Calgary’s Gay history Project, will lead walking tours of queer activism at the University of Calgary. This 50-minute tour takes delegates to key sites of queer culture and politics at the University of Calgary. Kevin explains how students organized to challenge homophobia and fought to make the university a place that celebrates sexual diversity. Tour begins in the men’s washroom of the Admin Building!
