CALL FOR PAPERS
Modernisms, Inside & Out
The 4th conference of the Canadian Women Artists History Initiative
Toronto, 20-22 August, 2020
A collaboration between Concordia University, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the McMichael Canadian Art Collection & Ryerson University’s Modern Literature and Culture Research Centre.
The 4th conference of the Canadian Women Artists History Initiative welcomes papers that respond to this question across all forms of material and visual culture. Case studies and broader analyses are welcome, as are new methodologies for studying un(der)explored Canadian women artists inside and outside of Canada. Modern formations cross time, geographies, cultures, and media; we invite your engagement with current debates that help us to better understand this diversity.
Deadline for submissions: 15 January 2020. Please email a working title, a 150-word abstract and a 2-page cv to firstname.lastname@example.org. Graduate students should also forward a letter of support from their supervisor. Selections will be made by 30 March 2020. Any inquiries may be directed to email@example.com
Gregory Betts is now an honorary Irish poet.
The designation is a fitting end to a year spent bringing Irish and Canadian cultures closer together while teaching at the University College Dublin.
Gregory is one of only four non-Irish poets to have their work included in the University College Dublin’s Irish Poetry Reading Archive, a national project that seeks to record every Irish poet reading their work and talking about their writing.

The Centre for Canadian Studies is thrilled to announce the Fulbright Research Chair in Canadian Studies. Dr. Jason Black is a professor and Chair of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte who will be on campus for the winter term. He will be teaching CANA 3V92 Social Activism and Culture in Canada and the United States on Thursdays in D3. This course is a cross-cultural study of social activism and its rhetorical functions in Canada and the United States. Students will analyse how public communication texts and media representations such as speeches, manifestos, narratives, music, memoirs, and film reflect social change. Case studies will be drawn from activism about race/ethnicity; Indigenous mascotting; gender and sexualities; and environmentalism.
Students interested in registering for this course should do so as soon as possible as we expect it to fill quickly. We have recently crosslisted the course with Communications (COMM 3V92), Film (FILM 3V92) and Popular Culture (PCUL 3V92).
