What do Historians of Canada Study?

3 06 2013

The annual meeting of the Canadian Historical Association starts today in Victoria, British Columbia. Sadly, I’m not going to be there, although I certainly hope to be at all future CHA conferences. Tom Peace has published an excellent blog post in which he analyses the keywords in paper titles to give us a sense of the topics that historians of Canada are working on right now.

In my view, the most interesting part of the Peace’s post was the information about the time periods covered by the papers. As you can see, the focus of Canadian historians is now on relatively recent periods of history.
