“CANADA: SUBVERSIONS, INVERSIONS, AND CONVERSIONS”
Carleton University, Ottawa
November 16-17, 2006
The third annual Carleton-Trent Graduate Student Conference in Canadian Studies will take place at Carleton University on November 16 and 17, 2006. A product of consultation and co-operation between both universities, the conference has been designed for and by students as an interdisciplinary event addressing a range of critical issues in Canadian Studies. This year’s theme, “Canada: Subversions, Inversions, and Conversions”, encourages interdisciplinary discussion across a range of diverse fields.
The organizing committee is now accepting abstracts (of no more than 250 words) for conference presentations. Proposed papers may address topics from a wide range of disciplines and should fall into one of the broad themes of subversions (acts of rebellion), inversions (acts of critical exploration), and conversions (acts of transformation).
Subversions (acts of rebellion)
This panel will examine competing systems of meaning and praxis, particularly those that undermine dominant constructions of Canada.
Inversions (acts of critical exploration)
This panel will focus on tensions and contradictions in the study of Canada, highlighting links with such critical perspectives as feminist theory, critical race theory, and post-colonial theory.
Conversions (acts of transformations)
This panel will explore the relationships between economy, civil society, and public policy, and the interaction of each of these with social, political, and cultural life in Canada.
The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2006.
Please send an abstract, a brief biographical statement, and contact information to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
