Conversations across time, place, and culture In 2019, the University of British Columbia will welcome the Canadian Historical Association Annual Meeting in Vancouver. The Programme Committee has selected the theme “Conversations across time, place, and culture” to encourage scholars whose work engages all manner of topics, themes, periods, locations, and methodologies to think critically about the importance of “conversations” in the creation and dissemination of historical knowledge. Historians participate in conversations with evidence, the archive, other scholars, and the public. These conversations produce our understanding of the past and broaden our understanding of the nature of historical knowledge and the power dynamics that shape it. They can reinforce, transcend and unsettle boundaries such as the limits that confine geographical, political, social, cultural, sexual, or other forms of discourse. And these conversations contribute to public debates, reaching audiences that go beyond the confines of academia and participating in the development of public history. At the same time, these conversations can also be bounded by the limits of communication, understanding, interest, or translation. The Programme Committee therefore invites scholars to see this Annual Meeting as an opportunity to reflect on all of these sorts of conversations as moments when historical knowledge is produced not simply by the lone historian, but in dialogue with sources, scholars, and audiences. This sort of reflection may, in turn, broaden our subject matter, our modes of communication, and our audiences.
