The Association for Canadian Studies in the United States (ACSUS) will host its 25th biennial conference, November 13-16, 2019, in Montreal, Canada. The conference is open to all proposals with a significant Canadian focus. We welcome papers and panel proposals from graduate students, professors, independent scholars, and practitioners on any aspect of the Canadian experience, including comparative inquiries. Disciplinary, multidisciplinary, and interdisciplinary scholarly inquiries dedicated to examining the conference theme of inclusion/exclusion in Canada and Canadian affairs are especially encouraged. In what ways can Canada be regarded as an inclusive society by the international community? What policies has Canada established and pursued over the past 150 years to foster and expand inclusivity? Have there been notable variations over time, across issues and governments, and in Canada’s approach toward inclusivity? And how might these be explained? Finally, how is Canada currently positioning itself to embrace inclusivity given the variety of pressing global concerns that exist in the international community?
Deadline: April 15, 2019
