As most of you know, the CSTHA / AHSTC joined the Cdn Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences so that we can participate in the Congress in years in which we do not have our own conference. Many CSTHA / AHSTC members who are academics will be at Congress and we hope you will take the opportunity to attend our session. (Previous Call for Papers)
