Past Tense Online is calling on new historians to contribute their expertise to the myriad global crises that we face today. We are especially interested in commentaries that examine the history of residential schools in Canada, the broader legacies of settler-colonialism, and the continued presence of colonization in Indigenous communities across Turtle Island. Commentaries are essays of 1000-1500 words that intervene in current scholarly debates, place current events in historical perspective, or share unexpected archival finds. Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis. Please submit your pitch or completed work to


We also invite Indigenous, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit scholars to share their work on other topics, and that may be informed by any number of Indigenous knowledge systems.


We are excited about the future of Past Tense Online and look forward to reading and sharing your work with historians across the world. We also welcome proposals for collaboration. Please write to us at or visit our website,
