A message from CHEA/ACHÉ:
We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the 19th biennial conference of the Canadian History of Education Association/Association canadienne d’histoire de l’education. CHEA/ACHÉ is Canada’s national, bilingual association to promote the study of the educational past (www.ache-chea.ca). Our membership, comprised of academics, teachers, museum educators, local historians, and university students, addresses such timely issues as reconciliation education and history education methods. This year’s conference theme is Teaching Nation? Histories of Education and the Politics of Commemoration. As we approach Canada’s 150th birthday, CHEA/ACHÉ attendees will explore how education has been or currently is a conduit for the commemoration or counter-commemoration of history.
The conference will be held at the Delta Waterloo (100 Erb Street St. W.) in Waterloo, Ontario from October 27 to 30, 2016. Conference details, including a draft program, travel and accommodation information, and a link to online registration, is available on the CHEA/ACHÉ website at http://www.ache-chea.ca/conference/. Registration for this 4-day event includes most meals, a welcome reception, a museum tour, a featured history education day, and a 2-year membership with the association. We offer a special rate for students and teachers (including part-time faculty) of only $150. You are also invited to attend a conference banquet on Saturday, October 29th for a small additional cost. Online registration is through the CHEA/ACHÉ website or directly athttps://www.regonline.ca/chea2016.
We look forward to seeing you at CHEA/ACHÉ 2016 in October.
