This conference, co-sponsored by Athabasca University and the University of Alberta, will inaugurate a new version of the Western Canadian Studies conferences, which in the 1970s and 1980s helped generate energy and vitality in the field through bi-annual rendezvous. The conference is an opportunity to:
The plenary session of three invited speakers who represent diverse perspectives and generations, will address overarching themes in Western Canadian historiography. Semi-plenary panels will assess and critique the state of scholarship in major areas of activity in Western Canadian history: political, environmental, women and gender, Aboriginal, immigration and ethnicity, social class, comparative/ borderlands, and African-Canadian.
Other sessions will feature the most recent scholarship on the West, with particular emphasis on the diversity of the social landscape of the West, the themes of memory and commemoration, environmental history, and the modern post World War II West. The conference will advance lively and important discussions about what we have accomplished, what may have been overlooked and how we must expand our horizons.
