2023 Historian in Residence

Heritage Calgary and Calgary Public Library invite applications for the paid position of Historian in Residence at Central Library in downtown Calgary.

The Historian in Residence program is a six-month community engagement residency that supports historians and researchers working in any genre related to Calgary’s (Mohkinsstsis) social, cultural and built history.

Historians tell stories about the past, present and future. A Historian is not defined by their job title or profession, but rather through their work. The idea of what a Historian is, how they work and in what format, has changed in the 21st century. The public is interested in learning and seeing the process of experts in various fields.

The Historian in Residence is invited to actively use the Calgary Public Library Collection and the Inventory of Evaluated Historic Resources to document, research and interpret the people, places and events that have created Calgary’s distinct character.
