We are pleased to invite proposals for panels and papers on all areas of research on British Columbia, including those that address intersections within and between peoples and places throughout the province. We welcome submissions from scholars working in all fields, including the arts and humanities, law, education, social work, and the natural and social sciences. We especially encourage proposals that focus on marginalized peoples and/or places, and that explore relatively understudied or overlooked aspects of British Columbia’s past, present, and future. Proposals from Indigenous researchers are particularly welcomed, as are submissions from graduate students and community-based scholars.

  • Panels, roundtables, or workshops: Proposals for panels, roundtables, or workshops should include a title, brief description (150 words) of the session theme, brief abstract (50 words) for each presentation, and a one-page CV for each presenter.
  • Individual papers: Individual paper proposals should include a title, brief abstract (250 words), and a one-page CV.
  • Posters: Proposals for posters should include a title, brief description (100 words), and a one-page CV.

Deadline for submissions: December 7, 2018
