The thirty-sixth annual meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Scandinavian Studies in Canada (AASSC) will be held at the Ryerson University from Sunday, May 28 – Wednesday, May 31, 2017 in conjunction with the meetings of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences / Fédération Canadienne des Sciences Humaines (http://congress2017.ca/).
The AASSC invites papers of 20 minutes duration, to be followed by an additional 10 minutes of discussion time. Papers may be given in English or French on a Scandinavian / Nordic related topic in any discipline, including Finnish, Greenlandic, Faroese and Icelandic topics.
As stated on the Congress website, the 2017 overall theme is “The Next 150, On Indigenous Lands,” and “honours Canada’s rich history, a history that predates 150 years, and is inclusive of different ideas, geographies, cultures, countries, schools of thought and disciplines. The theme encourages reflection on our national identities, as well as cross-collaboration and an interdisciplinary approach to the social sciences and humanities.”
AASSC encourages panels (3 participants) that deal with identity and diversity as expressed by the Federation above, in a Scandinavian/Nordic context. However, papers are NOT limited to these themes/angles, and we welcome all contributions within Scandinavian Studies. Thus, proposals for panels on other themes within Scandinavian / Nordic Studies are also invited, as are proposals for interdisciplinary colloquia or special sessions on the level of the overall Congress of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences. Let the AASSC Program Committee Chair know if you wish your panel to be a part of the overall Congress and/or an interdisciplinary session.
