CALL FOR PAPERS: DEADLINE EXTENDED
This year, the Society for Socialist Studies turns fifty, and we look forward to welcoming a record number of 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. As part of this dialogue, we remain open as always to sessions, papers, and roundtables on the full range of socialist inquiry.
We have a lot of fantastic sessions, which are currently seeking individual paper submissions. Check out our list of sessions here to find out the details.
To submit an individual paper to a session or to have a paper considered independently, click here and follow the prompts.
Please note that the deadline for paper proposals has been extended to February 7, 2017.
A limited number of travel grants are available of up to $350 for those traveling within Canada and up to $500 for those traveling internationally. To apply, please fill out the form available here and submit it to: email@example.com
