Dear members,

I am delighted to introduce the calls for papers for the 2018 ACQL Conference. For this conference, the Association makes two calls for papers, one a general call and another a call for submissions to member-organized sessions.

ACQL’s annual conference will take place at the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan from May 26-28, 2018.

Featuring English- and French-language plenaries and panels, the 2018 conference adapts the theme of Congress 2018, “Gathering Diversities,” to the Association’s commitment to language as a living archive of culture and politics. In Regina, home of longstanding Fransaskois, Métis, and anglophone communities, we will bring junior and established scholars together to consider the roles that literature plays in expressing Canadians’ relations to their many languages here and around the world.

Plenary speakers include  Zarqa Nawaz, Wendy Roy, Pamela Sing, and Audrée Wilhelmy.

Sincerely,

Élise Lepage – President
