Beyond 150: Telling Our Stories
On August 24 and 25, Andrea Eidinger and Krista McCracken hosted the first-ever Canadian History Twitter Conference, “Beyond 150: Telling Our Stories.” They explain in the event description that “2017 was intended to be a year of celebrating Canada. However, in the midst of controversies like CBC’s The Story of Us and the debate over the “appropriation prize” in Canadian literature, it is clear that older and more traditional narratives and approaches are no longer sufficient or even acceptable.”
The organizers shared that “this event 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.”
We hope you will help us continue to share fascinating stories about Canada’s past.
We highlight our nation’s diverse past by telling stories that illuminate the people, places, and events that unite us as Canadians, and by making those stories accessible to everyone through our free online content.
