The latest Bulletin of the Canadian Historical Association / Société historique du Canada (volume 32.2, 2006) includes details on next year's Annual Meeting / Congrès annuel to be held on the campus of the University of Saskatchewan, in Saskatoon, 28-30 May 2007. The primary theme of the conference is "Bridging Communities: Making Public Knowledge, Making Knowledge Public / Construire des ponts : des communautés de savoir au savoir public." The description notes: "Scholars are encouraged to consider the connections between historical research and the public (such as the public impact of historical inquiry), as well as address how history can be made meaningful and accessible to the public" and "On encourage les chercheurs à explorer les rapports entre la recherche historique et le public (par exemple, l'impact des recherches historiques sur les populations), et à étudier les moyens de rendre l'histoire significative et accessible au grand public." The two sub-themes listed are "Aboriginal Peoples / Les peuples autochtones" and "The Circumpolar North / Le Nord circumpolaire." Anyone interested in presenting a paper or "organizing a panel, roundtable or forum" is told to visit the CHA/SHC website for further instructions, with an "absolute deadline for submissions" of 31 October 2006.
