NEWS | Call for Papers: CBHS Annual Meeting, April 2020

This is a call for papers for the upcoming annual meeting of the Canadian Baptist Historical Society (CBHS). While the CBHS is primarily focused on Canadian Baptist history, papers will be considered on the history of other Baptist communities worldwide. The deadline for paper proposals is 1 December 2019. Please send by email a 200-word summary of the proposed paper and a CV to Gordon Heath (address below).

The CBHS traces its origins back to the nineteenth century when Baptists passionate about their heritage began a process of preserving critical documents and studying the Baptist presence in Ontario and Quebec. Its primary focus is on the history of all Baptists in the Canadian context, but the study of Baptists around the globe is also a part of its mandate. Scholars, pastors, students and those interested in Baptist history are all warmly invited to attend meetings of the society.

The 2020 meeting will be held at Toronto Baptist Seminary. Future locations will be Heritage Seminary (2021), McMaster Divinity College (2022), and Tyndale Seminary (2023).
