100 volumes on understanding nationality

Guest blog by Shirley Tillotson, Professor Emeritus, Department of History, Dalhousie University, and Inglis Professor, University of King’s College

The Canadian Historical Review celebrates its 100th volume this year. It was among several new national organizations that were born in the nationalist years following the First World War. In the journal’s September issue, I looked back at the CHR's history. Being the journal of a national history has been a fine thing, but it means something different now, something more ambiguous, than it did on the CHR's previous anniversaries in 1944, 1970, and 1995.

Contributors to the CHR have usually been professional Canadianists. It’s to be expected that they would investigate the nation. This was especially so...

Lily Polowin, coordinatrice des communications, Fédération des sciences humaines

Depuis mon arrivée à la Fédération le 31 mai dernier (c’est-à-dire le premier jour du Congrès 2019), je suis attentivement ce que disent les médias au sujet des études post-secondaires au Canada. En ce début de trimestre, voici un résumé de ce qui rend la rentrée 2019 si unique. Bonne lecture!

Pour plusieurs, l’équité et la représentation dans le milieu universitaire sont des priorités en cette période de rentrée. En effet, le Programme des chaires de recherche du Canada a récemment mis à jour ses pratiques en matière d’équité en fixant des cibles plus...

Back to school 2019 - What is the media saying?

Lily Polowin, Communications Coordinator, Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Since I started working for the Federation on May 31 (the first day of Congress 2019), I’ve been doing all I can to get up to date on the conversations the media is having about post-secondary education in Canada. With the rhythms of a new semester starting up, here is a summary of what makes back to school 2019 unique. Happy reading!

Equity and representation in academia are top of mind for many this back-to-school season. The Canada Research Chairs program recently updated its equity measures with ...

Journalism + Academia = Better information

Guest blog by Scott White, Editor, The Conversation Canada

There’s a sad irony facing society today: at a time when people need strong journalism more than ever, the business model of the legacy journalism industry is broken and may be beyond repair. In a world where “fake news” has found its way into the lexicon over the last year, how will Canadians get factual and important information they need to help them make informed decisions about significant issues in their lives?

One solution can be found in the world of academia. Consider the possibilities if academics, armed with years of knowledge, expertise and research relevant to many of today’s current events, could work with journalists to provide a new form of journalism.

That’s exactly the model for The Conversation Canada. I’m the new Editor of The Conversation Canada and we will be launching...
