Welcome to the Canadian Network on Humanitarian History Newsletter.

Dear colleagues of the Canadian Network on Humanitarian History,
It is my pleasure to announce the launch of the network’s website. Please have a look at , and use the form “contact us” to send suggestions, events, blogs and images. The site was the product of the reflection conducted in Ottawa last May during the second workshop of the network. Three research assistants mentioned here then helped to put it together. We hope that it is useful to you, your colleagues and students. We have a rich list of blogs lined up for the coming six months, with places left if you are planning on sending one. The latest was written by our current RA, Sean Eedy, on the time when Germans were refugees and not hosts. Read it here.

Upcoming Events

The network’s third workshop will take place in Calgary after Congress, on Thursday June 2, from 8:30-5:00. It will be free, but please register here. We yet have to tell you in exactly which room of the University, but we have it booked together with catering, and a special event on the Wednesday evening before, when the Network was invited to introduce the conference of Romeo Dallaire, organized by our hosts in Calgary (more to come). It will be an occasion to plan future research and events, and to take store of existing projects.
The 2016 Canadian Historical Association Congress will be held May 29-June 1. Members of the Network will be presenting papers at the “Aid, Advocacy, Development, and Faith in the Pre-Digital Age” panel (scheduling to be determined).

Ongoing Research

In the wake of last year’s Congress in Ottawa, historians, NGO workers and archivists volunteered to put together a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant to foster historical work with NGOs. The news of the competition will come in March. Whichever way this decision comes down, research is happening. At the moment, from the Network itself, Carleton honours students Eleanor Barney, is working as an undergraduate RA to provide the Partnership Africa Canada Communications Director, Zuzia Danielski, a report of the PAC’s history for use as part of their 30th anniversary plans.
The work of archival description of the 160 Match International boxes for Carleton Archives and Research Collections continues. This will help prepare for the activities of their upcoming anniversary. The network also helped to preserve archives and memories when the Canadian Hunger Foundation closed last fall. See the post on this here.
Since our last meeting the CNHH is richer of more than a dozen new members. You can see the growing list here. If you don’t see your name, please send me a message through our website’s contact form, or by replying to this message.
