13th NACS Conference - Aarhus, Denmark

Dear all,

I'm taking the liberty of writing with the hope that you might be interested in taking part in the next NACS international Canadian Studies conference planned for 11-13 August 2021 in Aarhus, Denmark. You can find the call for papers here.

Proposals may be submitted in English or French. The deadline for proposals is 30 November.

We are aware in NACS that we can't be sure what the covid-19 situation will be next summer. We are hopeful that we can organize a live event, but if needed, we will or course make alternative arrangements as unfortunately many sister associations have already had to do.

All the best from Finland,

Janne Korkka
President, Nordic Association for Canadian Studies/NACS
