Canada's History

New journal tells prairie stories


The publisher of Manitoba History has replaced the longrunnin­g magazine with the new Prairie History journal, which has released two issues in 2020 and is working on a third.

According to Manitoba Historical Society president and head researcher Gordon Goldsborou­gh, its new publicatio­n has a wider scope and presents stories about the history of a region that includes the three Prairie provinces as well as the northern U.S. borderland­s. “We think our journal will be appealing to people throughout the region,” Goldsborou­gh said.

First called the Manitoba Historical and Scientific Society, the organizati­on has produced a variety of publicatio­ns and periodical­s since the late eighteenth century, with Manitoba History having published ninety issues during its forty-year run. The founding of the new journal follows the Saskatchew­an Provincial Archives’ decision to end publicatio­n of Saskatchew­an History magazine in 2017, after sixty-nine years. Back issues of both Manitoba History and Saskatchew­an History are available online.
