Dept. of Romance Studies / courtyard 8, University of Vienna, Friday, June 15- 16, 2018
Founded in 1998, the University of Vienna’s Centre for Canadian Studies/Centre d’Études Canadiennes (Zentrum für Kanada-Studien) fosters dialogue between researchers in many fields in which Canadian Studies have found a home, from Anglophone and Francophone literary and cultural studies to German Studies, media studies, Cultural Anthropology, Indigenous, and Gender Studies. As part of our mission, we facilitate professional networks in the humanities between Canada and Austria, support teaching mobility with our renowned partner universities across Canada, and study abroad exchanges, and we are continually organizing a variety of lectures, conferences, and other academic as well as cultural events. In 2018, as part of the University’s 20th Campus Anniversary, we are celebrating our achievements in a research fest, reviewing the past and presenting current research in Canadian Studies by both Austrian and Canadian students and scholars. The Place du Canada/Canada Square in courtyard 8, connecting the Departments of English and American Studies and Romance Studies and proudly showcasing the only Inuksuk figure in Austrian public space, will become a lively site of presenting Canada as an area of research and an exciting place of cultural production in and beyond Vienna.
