On April 19, the Canadian Historical Association organized a panel as part of the Annual Meeting of the National Council on Public History in Ottawa entitled “After the Cuts: The Future of History in Canada.” The panel was designed to analyze the changes to historical work in Canada stemming from recent federal budget cuts, revised mandates, and institutional reorganizations.
Chaired by Martin Laberge from Université Quebec en Outaouais, the roundtable featured Ellen Judd, President of the Canadian Anthropological Association, Loryl McDonald, President of the Association of Canadian Archivists, William Ross, President of the Canadian Archaeological Association, and Lyle Dick, President of the Canadian Historical Association. While each panelist addressed issues relating to their respective associations, they also discussed how the study of history can move forward in this changing environment.
