15 March 2019, Griffith University, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Thanks to the generosity of the Law Futures Centre at Griffith University, the Association for Canadian Studies in Australia and New Zealand (ACSANZ) invites emerging scholars to a one-day symposium on Canadian Studies.
This symposium seeks to bring together emerging scholars—whether undergraduate or graduate students or early career researchers—to present their work and to engage in larger discussions about the state of global Canadian Studies. No single question will drive the symposium; rather, we hope that participants will use it as an opportunity to speak to how their research engages the study of Canada, and what they see as the futures of the field(s).
Participants will also have opportunities to discuss funding and publishing opportunities, and to develop new networks.
Presentations are invited on any aspect of the study of Canada, including, but not limited to, Indigenous Studies, literature, law, politics, international relations, language, history, Cultural Studies, the creative arts, and sociology. Contributions from across disciplines, including those taking comparative and interdisciplinary perspectives, are welcomed.
The generous support of the Law Futures Centre at Griffith University means that attendance at the symposium will be without cost to participants. ACSANZ will also offer three $350 AUD stipends to participants travelling from outside southern Queensland. Stipends will be awarded by the organising committee based on the merit of the accepted abstracts.
Submission deadline: Dec. 20, 2018.
