43rd Annual Conference of the British Association for Canadian Studies, Senate House, London

19-21 April 2018

Keynote: Professor Margaret Macmillan 2018 – A Century Later: Memory, Remembrance and Change 

On the centenary of the end of the First World War, BACS’ 2018 Annual Conference will look beyond the war itself, at its impact upon Canada, engagement with and use of memory, and Canada’s place in the wider world. Change in the past century will very much be explored in the broader context of today’s Canada and its future. We are extremely pleased to announce that we will have Professor Margaret Macmillan as one of our keynotes.

As per usual practice, therefore, papers addressing other themes in Canadian Studies will be very welcome, including those that look at the 50th Anniversary of Pierre Elliott Trudeau becoming prime minister and Canada’s role in the ever-shifting politics of 21st century North America. The organisers of the conference encourage people to form panels on particular themes that will be of interest, e.g. Indigeneity, Canadian history, Canadian politics, Canadian literature, Quebec, foreign relations etc.

Panel Conference Proposals:

An abstract for each presenter no more than 250 words, together with one-page CVs for each of them, as well as a summary of the proposed panel of no more than 100 words, should be submitted as one Microsoft Word file, ensuring the filename contains the surname of the panel organiser by 30 November 2017 to the Conference Organiser, Bart Zielinski at: BACS2018conference@gmail.com

Individual Conference Proposals:

Abstracts of no more than 250 words, together with one-page CVs, should be submitted as one Microsoft Word file, ensuring the filename contains the surname of the proposed presenter by 30 November 2017 to the Conference Organiser, Bart Zielinski at: BACS2018conference@gmail.com

Decisions on conference proposals are expected to be made by the end of December 2017.
