Atlantic Canada Studies Conference

While working for Library and Archives Canada this past summer, my research led me to the website for the Atlantic Canada Studies Conference. As I browsed through the itinerary, I was struck by the number of sessions that related to topics that the 2006-2007 Public History class discussed in Public History, Digital History, Archival Studies, Social Memory, and Museology courses. This year the conference ran at the beginning of May, and it might have been a great opportunity for Public History students to consolidate their learning experiences before heading out to begin the internship component of the program. Conferences are a wonderful opportunity to learn, network, and socialize that this year’s Public History students may want to consider!
