Student travel bursaries for the Atlantic Canada Studies Conference
University of New Brunswick, Saint John
4-6 May 2012

The Historians of the Environment of Atlantic Canada, the regional network of the Network in Canadian History and Environment, is offering travel bursaries of 500$ to three Master’s or senior undergraduate students interested in attending the 19th Atlantic Canada Studies Conference in Saint John.

The conference’s theme is regionalism, with an emphasis on the construction of cultural, provincial and regional identities, the contested nature of identities and the relation of region to nation. HEAR and NiCHE are sponsoring the keynote speaker, Richard Judd of the University of Maine, who will be speaking on regional and transboundary environmental history.

Please send your c.v. and a covering letter explaining your interests in Atlantic Canadian history and your interest in attending to:
