CALL FOR PAPERS

Please see the attached call for papers for the 2018 Qualicum History Conference.
 
For the past 42 years, the History Department at the University of Victoria has helped organize an annual conference in Parksville called the Qualicum History Conference.  It is an interdisciplinary gathering of scholars from across the Pacific Northwest, and a key venue for graduate students to exchange ideas, share original research, and socialize with fellow students and faculty. Open to members of the community as well as the university, "Qualicum" provides many young
scholars a first opportunity to present their research in a conference setting among colleagues from other institutions.
 
Friday Night Speaker:
Pamela Sugiman, Ryerson University, Dean of Faculty of Arts and Professor of Sociology
"Remembering Loss in the Lives of Japanese Canadians"
 
The Program Committee welcomes paper proposals on all historical topics, regions, and time periods, as well as ideas for innovative sessions and workshops. Graduate students at B.C. universities will be given priority, but proposals from senior undergraduates and out-of-province graduate students are also welcome.
Talks are normally 20 minutes long.
 
Please publicize far and wide: students, encourage your friends; faculty, encourage your students - and encourage everyone you meet to like the Facebook page!
 
Online submissions only at: Online Form for Proposal Submissions.
