CASCA/IUAES2017 Conference in Ottawa
International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES) and Canadian Anthropology Society (CASCA)
The Conference/InterCongress will be hosted at the University of Ottawa, on the unceded, traditional territory of the Algonquins of the Ottawa River Watershed. Canada’s capital city is built on the banks of the Kitchisippi, the Great River, the Ottawa River; the Sacred Chaudière Falls and Islands have served as a meeting place of great spiritual importance to the people of North America since time immemorial. In 2017, Canada celebrates its 150 birthday. Join us for our Conference/InterCongress May 2-7 2017, in the National Capital Region!
The call for panels is now open and will close at the end of 26th October at 23:59 Eastern Daylight Time (UTC/GMT -4 hours).
Panel proposals do not include agreed papers. The accepted panels will be open to paper proposals later during the Call for Papers stage. At that stage both solicited and unsolicited papers can be proposed to the panel – i.e. the panels will not function as ‘closed’ panels. Authors will propose their paper to a specific panel.
Please read the conference theme, and then the call for panels page, to understand the conference process and to submit your proposal online.
We welcome proposals from the IUAES commissions, CASCA members and colleagues from all over the world, whether they are current members of the associations or not.
