Marking Twenty Years of NiCHE

Event and Post Proposal Deadline: 30 September 2024

Series Will Run to the End of 2024

The Network in Canadian History and Environment (NiCHE) is celebrating our twentieth anniversary this year! Our founding director, Alan MacEachern, reflected on the eve of this momentous occasion in November. Earlier this month, we held our first “NiCHE at 20” event, a five-person panel reflecting on NiCHE’s role in cultivating community in environmental history over the past twenty years.

Now we would like to invite our broader community to partake in our anniversary. We welcome proposals for events (in-person and online), blog posts, and other “NiCHE at 20” ideas that reflect on, celebrate, and otherwise mark our twentieth anniversary.

The proposal deadline for “NiCHE at 20” is September 30, 2024. Events, posts, and other content should take place or be published before the end of 2024.
