Socialist Studies 2017
This year, the Society for Socialist Studies turns fifty, and we look forward to welcoming colleagues to our annual conference at Congress 2017, hosted by Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario from May 30 – June 2 2017.
The theme of the Conference is ‘Liberation Here and Now: Continuity and Change in Socialist Studies at 50 Years and Beyond.’ Diverging from the Congress theme, ‘From Far and Wide: The Next 150’, we call upon participants to fundamentally trouble Project Canada, to celebrate past and future resistances and solidarities, and to engage in dialogue on how to get to a decolonized praxis and collective liberation here and now.
Our Draft Program is Now Available. Check it out here.
If you are planning on attending the conference, please remember to register as a member.
And we encourage you to also sign up for our 50th anniversary Banquet Dinner, which will be held at Lula Lounge on May 31. Tickets are $45 ($25 low wage) and will include a choice of three entrees.
