The Canadian Society of Presbyterian History (CSPH) is dedicated to promoting and encouraging research on the history of Presbyterians in Canada and other topics related to the Reformed tradition.

The Society meets annually to hear papers which explore a variety of topics of interest.

The CSPH invites proposals for papers to be presented at its 2021 Academic meeting.

Papers may be chosen for a short (20 to 30 minute) or a longer presentation time. Presenters may indicate their preference.

This is an open call for Papers so that presenters are not confined to a certain topic.

One bursary of $500 is available annually to a beginning scholar who researches, writes and presents a Paper at the annual conference. For more details, see:

Due to the uncertainty of whether a physical meeting will be possible due to Covid-19 protocols, we are asking speakers to present virtually (as was done at last year’s gathering).

If you are interested in submitting a one-page proposal and a brief one-page CV, please do so by email to:
