AASSC Conference, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada, June 3-6, 2019

The thirty-eighth annual meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Scandinavian Studies in Canada (AASSC) will be held at the University of British Columbia from Monday, June 3– Thursday, June 6, 2019 in conjunction with the meetings of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences / Fédération Canadienne des Sciences Humaines.

The AASSC invites papers of 20 minutes duration, to be followed by an additional 10 minutes of discussion time. Papers may be given in English or French on a Scandinavian / Nordic related topic in any discipline, including Sami, Finnish, Greenlandic, Faroese and Icelandic.

There are two deadlines again this year. If you must hand in your application for funding to your institution already this fall, you may submit your proposal by October 20, 2018, and the Program Committee will give you an answer by the end of October. In all other cases, the deadline for submission of proposals for panels/abstracts is January 15, 2019, through e-mail only.

Submissions should include the title of the paper, an abstract (150-250 words), and the author’s name, affiliation, a very brief bio, and contact information.
