Third Workshop of the History of Humanitarian Aid will be held at University of Calgary
Third Workshop of the History of Humanitarian Aid
Come to a one-day workshop on Thursday, June 2 to explore ways to foster relationships between NGO workers, historians, archivists and educators. A variety of experts will share ideas, comments and needs.
As with last year’s workshop, the goals here are to:
-Explore concrete ways by which NGOs and development agencies can capture, preserve and share their rich histories.
-Strengthen and expand existing relationships and international networks of humanitarian history.
-Explore strategies and opportunities to maximize the collective work, to identify and reach interested audiences.
This workshop will be held the Thursday following the 2016 CHA Conference at the University of Calgary. More details and registration information to come shortly. Please submit your interest to this workshop. Registration will open soon.
Members of the network will be speaking at the Canadian Historical Association Congress (May 30-June 1) in a session on “Canada’s Transnational Humanitarians – Aid, Advocacy, Development and Faith in the Pre-digital Age” (time to be confirmed).
