My reflection on the 2018 Canadian History and Environment Summer Symposium “Women and the Prairies Landscape” has been posted to the NiCHE blog The Otter. It can be read here!
I’m finishing up my time in Saskatchewan, by heading to Saskatoon for the Canadian History and Environment Summer Symposium. This year’s CHESS features both the traditional summer school and a new workshop component for the recently launched Papers in Canadian History and Environment. I will be workshopping my paper: “‘The Hardships he labours under for want of an Allowance of Fuel in that severe Climate’: Environment and Military and Naval Hospitals in Canada 1756-1814.”
Watch later in June for my Congress/CHESS retrospective on my Saskatchewan conferencing adventures!
Bright and early tomorrow morning I am off to the American Society for Environmental History conference in Seattle!
