Remember that awesome Twitter Conference Andrea Eidinger and I organized in August? You can now checkout a select number of the Beyond 150 presentations on the Canada’s History Society website. Beyond 150 was “designed to encourage collaboration, public engagement, and spark discussion about Canada’s history in a way that is accessible to everyone. It aimed to uplift diverse perspectives, unrepresented histories, and support the work of early-career and emerging scholars.”
The five presentations highlighted by Canada’s History Society include:
- History in Deed: Stories to Recall, Repair, Rebalance by Joanne Hammond
- History in Truth, and Indigenous Diaspora by Helen Knott
- Records We Are Not Proud Of: Archival Outreach and Controversial Materials by Sara Janes
- Ilhtsel t’áméx te’í:lé kw’els ílh stl’ítl’qelh”: Stó:lō Weavers and Settler Anthropology in the 1960s by Maddie Knickerbocker
- Be…In This Place: Cornerstones of Atlantic Canadian Citizenship by Sarah King
I’m still so very happy with how #Beyond15CA turned out. I have gone back to a number of these presentations since the event and used a couple of them in the classroom. Have a great idea for a 2018 twitter conference theme? Let me or Andrea know!
