Huron University College
The editorial team is excited to announce that we’re organizing a conference. New Directions in Active History: Institutions, Communication, and Technologies will take place at Huron University College in London, Ontario on the weekend of October 2-4, 2015.
With this conference, we hope to create a forum similar to our 2008 founding symposium, Active History: A History for the Future, where historians interested in the practice of Active History can share their research, methods, and projects with each other.
Second, as a primarily web-based and volunteer-run project, we also intend to use this conference to explore new directions for ActiveHistory.ca. With 20,000 unique visitors a month, ActiveHistory.ca is one of the best known history-related websites in Canada. Over the past five years, we’ve published over 1,000 blog posts, peer reviewed papers, book reviews, and podcasts. It is time to revisit the project’s goals and look towards what the next five years will bring.
