Call for Papers on "War and Peace in Canadian History" Conference
The 2008 annual conference of the British Association for Canadian Studies History Group is scheduled to take place at Canada House, Trafalgar Square, London, England, on Friday, 11 July 2008, under the theme of "War and Peace in Canadian History". The one-day conference is open to anyone interested in Canadian history and is expected to include scholars from Canada, Great Britain and the United States. Proposals for papers twenty minutes in length are welcome on any aspect of the conference's theme. The press release notes: "It is anticipated that topics will range from the very broad, e.g. peacekeeping in Canadian history to the quite specific, e.g. Canada's current role in Afghanistan. Proposals relating to Quebec will be especially welcome in view of the 400th anniversary this year of the founding of Quebec City. Proposals relating to other anniversaries, e.g. the Munich agreement of 1938, will also be welcome." The deadline for submissions is 30 April 2008 and should be a maximum of 300 words plus curriculum vitae. Registration will be free for presenteres, and 20 Pounds for other attendees. The point of contact is Tony McCulloch, Director of Canadian Studies, Canterbury Christ Church University, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 1QU, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
