deadline for submissions:  April 2, 2023

When:  April 13 and 14, 2023

Where:  Zoom video conference

Notification:  April 5, 2023

The Graduate Student Council of the Department of Modern Languages and Cultural Studies at the University of Alberta invites submissions for its annual Connections conference: Multicultural Connections. After the great success of the two previous online conferences, this year’s conference will also be held virtually on April 13 and 14, 2023. It will feature two days of academic panels and an evening showcase of art and creativity. Since the conference is organized by a Canadian university, we encourage submissions focusing on, but not limited to, multicultural connections within the Canadian context. We will be accepting academic and creative contributions that explore, from a critical perspective, multicultural connections found in communities, disciplines, cultures, languages and artistic works. The goal of the conference is to question, challenge, and interpret their significance. We await submissions from various disciplines across the Social Sciences and Humanities, including but not limited to fields such as Literary Studies, Applied Linguistics, Translation, and Cultural Studies. The Graduate Student Council welcomes everyone working in these fields and strongly encourages submissions from new graduate students.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Academic Contributions:
● Communication
● Connection through translation
● Literary connections
● Creative nonfiction
● Politicization of aesthetics
● Visual culture
● Digital worlds

Artistic Contributions:
● Poetry reading
● Performance art
● Comics
● Storytelling
● Visual Arts
● Multimedia
● Singer/Songwriting

Academic presentations will be 15 minutes in length, followed by a 5-minute discussion period. Panels will run for 60 minutes. Artistic contributions can be submitted individually or in addition to academic papers, and will be showcased during our Creative Night.

Academic Contributions:
● 250-word abstract ● 150-word bio

Artistic Contributions:
● example of creative work (e.g. a photo or excerpt)  ● 150-word bio

Please submit your proposal via the form on by April 2, 2023. Notifications will be sent by April 5, 2022. Acceptance will be based on content quality, originality, and academic significance.
