The Historian in Residence is a six-month paid residency that supports individual researchers working in any genre related to the social, cultural and built history of Calgary, Treaty 7 and Métis Region 3.
They deliver free programs and act as a mentor to historians, writers, and researchers through individual consultations, and curate an exhibit at Central Library.
Presented in partnership with Heritage Calgary.
These titles explore the role of museums and cherished artifacts, and the importance of preserving local history. Perhaps most importantly, they've inspired our 2022 Historian in Residence throughout her residency and beyond.
