I would like to promote a new Canadian history resource,

From their website:

“ is a new website to help connect historians with the public, policy makers and the media.  This is a part of an effort to facilitate and disseminate the ideas developed at the  conference “Active History: History for the Future” at Glendon College in September 2008.  The website project is currently being led by a group of PhD Students in the History Department at York University, but we hope to expand the steering committee and editorial support board over the next few months.

We are looking at the British History & Policy Website as a model for this project.

We are looking for historians to join our database and submit papers.

We are also seeking editorial board members.  Please contact us if you might be interested in taking a more active role with this project:”

Thanks for posting this – I hadn’t heard about the project before, and it looks promising.

And thanks as well for the blog in general: I’ve enjoyed it. Very glad to see more Canadian academics undertaking this sort of public writing.

I’m glad to see that people are reading my blog! Canadian academics do indeed need to communicate more with the public.
