Canadian Aviation History 2014 Conference: Call for Papers (and PowerPoints)
Our team is preparing its program and we’d love to hear from you. The conference is open to everyone – university students, professionals in aviation or heritage industries, and historians of every kind. We’re especially interested in all the ways aviation history is communicated and celebrated: non-fiction, fiction, film, theatre, art, photography, among others.
International presenters are welcome. Regina is in the centre of Western Canada and easily accessible by scheduled flights from central Canada and the U.S.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be posting more conference information atwww.cahs.ca, in our e-newsletter (you can sign up for it on the website), and on our Twitter (@CanAvHistSoc) and Facebook (Canadian Aviation Historical Society - National) pages.
