Canadian Historical Association Awards
The Canadian Historical Association Annual Meeting wrapped up in Toronto last week. Concordia historians were front and centre at the prize ceremony on Tuesday evening, bringing home no fewer than five national awards! Two faculty members, Nora Jaffary and Ron Rudin, one recent PhD graduate, Lachlan MacKinnon, and one current doctoral candidate, Eric Fillion, all deserve our heartfelt congratulations for this amazing success. They are setting standards of historical scholarship which are second to none and of which we can all be very proud!
