The 2016 Society for Socialist Studies (SSS) Conference starts in little over three months! We look forward to seeing you all in Calgary for three full days of scholarly dialogue about energizing class struggles.
Our keynote speakers are confirmed: Drs. Abigail Bakan (OISE, UToronto), Enakshi Dua (York) and Meg Luxton (York) will be speaking on “Intersectionality and Socialist Feminism.” Please note that Dr. Glen Coulthard (UBC) had to postpone due to health problems in his family but we hope that he will join us next year at Ryerson.
We have a very full program, with over 50 panels and more than 120 participants from Canada and around the world. If you are on the program, please take a moment to check your information and let our webmaster know whether anything needs correcting or updating (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Registration is open for the 2016 SSS conference. All participants must register for the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences as well as for the SSS conference, both of which you can do at this web site. Discounted early registration is available until March 31, 2016; please register before then to assist us in planning for the conference.
Information about travel and accommodation is available on the website. Book your accommodation and travel as soon as possible to secure the best rates. A limited number of travel grants are available. Please apply before March 31.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in Calgary at the end of May.
