2022 Conference (virtual)

Founded in 1975 in the wake of Canada’s official ratification of multiculturalism, the Association for Canadian and Québec Literatures has, over more than 45 years, emerged as Canada’s premier association for showcasing multilingual and transnational research in Canadian and Québec literatures. This year, ACQL’s annual conference will take place online from Thursday, May 26th to Saturday, May 28th, 2022. We invite proposals on any aspect of literatures in Canada and Québec.
