Canada Chapter

The Canadian Chapter of the ACHS aims to draw together and facilitate an interdisciplinary network of scholars, researchers, and practitioners working in the field of heritage studies who either work in Canada or have an interest in heritage issues in Canada. The goal of the Canadian chapter is to support those who explore how heritage has been framed, deployed, produced, signi­fied, and consumed in Canada.

 This chapter promotes the critical and practice-based study of heritage-related issues in Canada and support networking, dialogue, and the exchange and sharing of research and information between chapter members who undertake research, teaching, professional practice, and social activism in the public sphere.

Scholarship will be encouraged from across a range of diverse disciplines, practices, and sectors, involving both museum studies and built heritage conservation addressing tangible-intangible and cultural-natural aspects of heritage.
