We enhance scholarship on historical women artists and architects in Canada

Based in the Department of Art History at Concordia University in Montreal, CWAHI is a collaborative endeavour that fosters and circulates scholarly research into women’s contributions to the cultural and material history of Canada.
Our focus is on the period prior to 1967. 

We welcome participation from scholars and art institutions across the country and donations of research materials,  so please contact us if you are interested in becoming involved in any of our three main areas:
