7 - Association for Canadian and Québec Literatures (ACQL)
Founded in 1975 in the wake of Canada’s official ratification of multiculturalism, the Association for Canadian and Québec Literatures has, over more than 45 years, emerged as Canada’s premier association for showcasing multilingual and transnational research in Canadian and Québec literatures. This year, ACQL’s annual conference will take place at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences being held at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec from 14 to 16 June, 2024. We invite proposals on any aspect of literatures in Canada and Québec.
Proposals. The general call for papers invites proposals in English or in French on research, teaching, and professional matters of relevance to current or prospective members. As we strive to become a more inclusive and equitable association, ACQL strongly encourages bilingual sessions as well as thematic and methodological research that focuses on issues of equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization as they intersect with language, class, gender, sexuality, dis/ability, and other sites of social hierarchies and oppression. In keeping with the theme of Congress 2024, we are particularly interested in proposals that take up matters of sustainability, but we also welcome submissions on a broad range of topics related to literatures in Canada and Québec.
