This weekend sees the launch of this year’s edition of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. I still say “the Learneds” even though that’s not been the name of this monster round-up of Canadian academic society meetings for years. What can I say? I’m a historian!

I’m speaking at the Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies on Sunday morning – it’ll just be a short trip in and out for me this year as I’m still swamped with popular culture and history projects as well as an article I want to submit to an academic journal before the end of June.

But if you’re hanging around the Waterloo campus this weekend or checking out the Congress Expo, where all the publishers will be setting up shop, look for me. Or follow along on Twitter: that’s where I’ll be looking for the latest news myself.

    Good luck with all activities–looking forward to hearing how they went!

      It went very well but my time there was much too short. One problem of these events running during the kids’ school term is that we can’t drag them away from school for too long and autistic youngest can’t be left for others to mind, either. Kind of a Catch-22!
