The Organizing Committee of the 2nd Annual School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies Research Symposium is pleased to announce the release of the 2022 Call for Papers. The Symposium will take place virtually on Thursday April 7.

The theme of this year’s Symposium is Continuing the Conversation and is an opportunity to present new and ongoing research, gain conference experience, and connect with faculty and peers. Presenting at this event is open to graduate students, upper-year undergraduate students, alumni, and faculty. Paper presentations should be 15-20 minutes in length and will be followed by a question-and-answer period.

Building on the theme for this year, we encourage proposals that continue and build on critical conversations about the past, present, and future of Canada. We welcome proposals that continue and reinvigorate conversations surrounding change and disruption to the status quo, as well as those that advance the broad discipline of Canadian studies. Topics which may include, but are not limited to:

  • Decolonization
  • Reconciliation
  • Indigenous ways of knowing and epistemology
  • Climate change and crisis management/mismanagement
  • Economic inequalities
  • Systemic racism
  • Health care; changes, investments, and developments
  • Collaborative futures
  • Sustainable and inclusive communities
  • Canada on the international stage
  • Culture and identities
  • Heritage studies
  • Bilingualism/ Multiculturalism
  • Diversity and inclusion

If you are interested in presenting, please submit a proposed title, keywords, an abstract (150-250 words), and a short biography (50-75 words) to the Abstract Submission Portal by Sunday Feb. 20, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.
