NCPH 2022: “Crossroads”

If the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that we are currently standing at a crossroads. We have all witnessed monumental changes in society that have fundamentally altered how we see one another, how we interact with each other, and how we will go forward together in the future.

Being at a crossroads allows us to reckon with the past while seeking solutions for repair and contributing to a more equitable society. As public historians, our work is critical in defining turning points, meaningful direction, and inspiring movement on paths toward progress.

Montreal is a city rich with diverse cultures, history, and art. Sharing borders with the US, Canada is an ideal locale to anchor discussions related to raising marginalized voices in reimagined narratives. This annual meeting will help create opportunities to reckon with and repair historical relationships, design experiences that enable groups to celebrate differences and similarities, and build tools and sustainable methods.

We typically put out a call for a few late-breaking live sessions to add to our conference slate in January, about two months prior to the conference.

If you miss the summer deadline, think about submitting for this!


CLOSED CFPS

OPTIONAL TOPIC PROPOSAL SUBMISSION – closed june 1

While not required for submitting a final proposal, we encourage you to submit a topic proposal if you are gauging interest in a potential idea, looking for collaborators to join your proposal, or seeking feedback from the NCPH community. We’ll share topic proposals with NCPH members and here on our website after June 1, giving you time to incorporate feedback before the final proposal deadline of July 15. While optional, this additional step usually results in a stronger final proposal.
