The 2008 annual conference of the BACS History Group (British Association for Canadian Studies) will take place at Canada House, Trafalgar Square, on Friday 11 July, 10.00am to 5.00pm on the theme of "War and Peace in Canadian History". It will be attended by scholars from Canada, Britain and the USA and is open to anyone with an interest in Canadian history.
Proposals for papers (20 minutes in duration) are invited on any aspect of "War and Peace in Canadian History" including political, social, diplomatic, economic. literary and filmic approaches. It is anticipated that topics will range from the very broad, e.g. peacekeeping in Canadian history to the quite specific, e.g. Canada's current role in Afghanistan. Proposals relating to Quebec will be especially welcome in view of the 400th anniversary this year of the founding of Quebec City. Proposals relating to other anniversaries, e.g.the Munich agreement of 1938, will also be welcome.
The deadline for submission of proposals (about 300 words, please, plus c.v.) is 30 April 2008. Registration will be £20 (payable on the day, free to presenters) to cover lunch and refreshments. Accommodation at a nearby hotel can be arranged on request (up to 2 nights' accommodation may be payable for presenters, depending on the conference budget). For further information, or to submit a proposal or to register, please contact Tony McCulloch, Chair of BACS History Group (firstname.lastname@example.org).
