The 2016 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences will be held at the University of Calgary on Treaty 7 territory in Alberta. Society for Socialist Studies sessions will take place from May 31 to June 3.
The theme of the Conference is ‘Energizing Class Struggles: Race, Gender and Colonialism.’ Click here to read the full Call for Papers.
At this early point we are mainly interested in proposals for panels and roundtables, which will then be posted on our conference website. Proposals for roundtables should include a list of participants. Unlike paper sessions they are not available for individual proposals. We are open to other kinds of proposals for sessions. Abstracts (maximum of 100 words) for session proposals should be submitted by Monday, December 7, 2015.
To submit your session proposal (or paper abstract) please go to our conference website, at http://conferences.uvic.ca/index.php/sss/sss2016/ .
