University of Alberta, Edmonton, 2021

Founded in 1975 in the wake of Canada’s official ratification of biculturalism, the Association for Canadian and Québec Literatures has, over the course of 45 years, emerged as Canada’s premier association for showcasing bilingual research in Canadian and Québec literatures. This year, ACQL’s annual conference will take place at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences from 29 to 31 May, 2021 (pending final Congress dates). We invite proposals on any aspect of Canadian and Québec literatures, including but not limited to those addressing Congress 2021’s general theme of “Northern Relations.” Congress 2021 is organized in partnership with the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Alberta. However, because of the ongoing pandemic, the Federation has confirmed that Congress 2021 will be fully online.
