The CHSG has been meeting for over 30 years in the beautiful San Juan Islands. The Group has a long tradition of providing a congenial environment for scholars to share ideas about new projects and for graduate students to present their work, all while enjoying the camaraderie and inspiring environment of the Pacific Northwest.
