Call for conference presentations
December 18, 2015

The Environmental Studies Association of Canada (ESAC.ca) is pleased to invite you to participate in our Annual Conference at the University of Calgary (http://www.ucalgary.ca) as part of the 2016 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences (http://congress2016.ca/home).

As Canada’s leading association of interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners involved in a diversity of environmental fields, ESAC facilitates networking and dialogue across environment-related fields and practices. Our 2016 conference is an excellent opportunity for delegates to take part in a lively exchange of ideas relating to the environment among academics, students, researchers, members of NGOs, policy-makers and activists. All are encouraged to make submissions on a broad range of issues, themes and case studies.

This year’s conference theme, Energizing Communities, aims to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the University of Calgary, the conference host. As the Congress organizers have noted, “Congress 2016 will be a stimulating forum for scholarly engagement and will energize relationships across communities, leading to new connections, engagements and ultimately new ways of thinking.” Reflecting this theme, ESAC keenly invites submissions of scholarship and practice to engage with, address, and energize the vital environmental opportunities and challenges facing the world today. We invite proposals for paper presentations, pre-organized panel sessions, poster presentations, or—new this year—short, 10-minute thesis presentations by graduate students.

All proposals must be submitted by Friday, December 18, 2015. Please see the attached call for papers for details on proposals, special events and keynote speakers. (The website should be updated shortly, but all you need to know is in the call for papers.) We hope to see you there!
