Series of Events in Oral History


The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, a cross-faculty research unit at Concordia University, is launching its Winter 2017 Programme of events. In total, more than 15 events, including workshops, public talks and artistic presentations, will take place between January and May at COHDS. Facilitated by affiliates, staff, visiting researchers and invited guests, these events will cover a wide range of topics and approaches to the discipline of oral history. All events are free, but online registration is strongly advised, as seats are limited.



Historical Discourses is an annual open-access peer-reviewed undergraduate academic history journal based out of McGill University. It serves as a scholarly forum for undergraduate students at McGill to critically engage with a range of intellectual and public debates through historical inquiry.

We are now doing an open call to all McGill undergraduates and recent graduates to submit history papers as well as research articles in order to have the opportunity to be published in our Journal!
