Ryerson University, Toronto, 27-29 May 2017
The CAS Annual Conference is held as a part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences with more than 70 national associations in attendance. The theme of the 2017 Congress is "From Far & Wide: The Next 150.” You can find out more details here.
This year, CAS overlaps with: Linguistics, Folklore, Comparative Literature, Hungarian Studies, Study of Religion, Women’s and Gender Studies, Study of Education and Higher Education, Jewish Studies, History, Translation Studies, Sociology, and Film Studies.
Proposals for interdisciplinary panels with other associations are very welcome. They are always a highlight at the CAS conference. Additional funding from the Federation is available for such panels. Please do not hesitate to contact the Program Chair, Taras Koznarsky, email@example.com for assistance or information.
Proposals are invited for individual papers, panels, roundtable discussions and graduate student activities. Complete panels are preferred. Forms for panel, roundtable and individual proposals are available on the CAS website. Please follow our abstract specifications when submitting your proposal(s).
The conference traditionally features panels in the following areas (in alphabetical order):
- History (Russian, Ukrainian, Soviet, East European)
- Linguistics (comparative and Slavic)
- Pedagogy and Second Language Acquisition (study abroad; teaching of individual skills; curriculum design, presentation of new teaching materials; use of technology in language teaching, etc.).
- Politics in Eastern Europe
- Policy and Governance in Eastern Europe
- Russian and Eastern European Cinema (history, genre, individual film directors, themes).
- Slavic Literatures and Cultures (Many panels are dedicated to discussing individual writers and poets from Russia, Belarus, Poland, or the Balkans; various themes (history and literature, WWII, etc.); theoretical approaches including gender studies; history of literature (18th c. to contemporary), music, religion, etc.).
- Ukrainian Studies (The meeting of the Canadian Association Ukrainian Studies (CAUS ) is traditionally part of the CAS conference and therefore Ukrainian Studies are always very prominently represented at the CAS Annual Meeting. A large number of panels are formed on Ukrainian folklore and ethnography; diaspora studies; Ukrainian Canadian literature; museum studies; Holodomor studies; Ukrainian literature, politics, and culture).
Young scholars and graduate students are especially encouraged to participate. We kindly ask our senior CAS membership to support graduate students in applying. Travel grants are available to graduate students. An application form for 2016 Travel Grant will be sent out in March by the Secretary-Treasurer and will also be available on the CAS website.
Deadline for all proposals is 23 January 2017.
The program committee will respond to all proposals by 20 February 2017.
All presenters must be members of cas.
