CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Editorial Board is seeking contributions for Volume 16 of the Central European Journal of Canadian Studies / Revue d’études canadiennes en Europe centrale

Articles should not exceed 15 pages (27,000 characters with notes, excluding spaces).

We invite articles that examine any area of Canadian Studies. Because the Journal will be read by Canadianists from a variety of disciplines, we encourage submitters to write in a jargon-free style. This will ensure readability among both the expert and the general academic public. Use your good judgement to explain potentially alienating terminology or to avoid it altogether.

Also to encourage readability, please keep endnotes to a minimum. Instead, incorporate all relevant information into the body of your paper.

Reviews should not exceed 4 pages (7,200 characters excluding spaces). Reviews for the Central European Journal of Canadian Studies are restricted to 1) books by authors from the Central European region (in any language); 2) books by authors from outside the region that the reviewers feel are particularly useful for teaching or research purposes here; 3) translations of Canadian books that fall within the traditional domain of Canadian Studies. If in doubt, please feel free to contact us.

Reports (on activities or events in the region) should not exceed 1 page (1,800 characters excluding spaces).

General Requirements

To facilitate the review process, make sure to have your submission pre-read by a qualified native speaker of English.

Deadline for submission: August 16, 2021

Include “Journal 16” in the title of your e-mail.

Within a week of submitting your contribution, CEACS will send you electronic confirmation that it has been received. If you do not receive such a message of confirmation, please contact Jason Blake (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

The students in Prof. Andreea Șerban's Canadian Literature elective class at the West University of Timișoara have brainstormed and come up with several ideas for an event that is going to take place online via Google Meet on May 25, 2021, starting at 19.00 (EET/Romania time) / 18:00 (CET/Central European Time). Please see the event poster attached for more details.

We have also created it as a Facebook event, where students can express their interest.

Everyone welcome!
