This year, the Society for Socialist Studies turns fifty, and we look forward to welcoming a record number of colleagues to our annual conference at Congress 2017, hosted by Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario from May 30 – June 2 2017.
The theme of the Conference is ‘Liberation Here and Now: Continuity and Change in Socialist Studies at 50 Years and Beyond.’ Diverging from the Congress theme, ‘From Far and Wide: The Next 150’, we call upon participants to fundamentally trouble Project Canada, to celebrate past and future resistances and solidarities, and to engage in dialogue on how to get to a decolonized praxis and collective liberation here and now. As part of this dialogue, we remain open as always to sessions, papers, and roundtables on the full range of socialist inquiry.
We are currently seeking both session proposals (for panels, roundtables, and special events) and individual paper proposals.
To submit either kind of proposal, click here and follow the prompts.
Consideration of session proposals for inclusion in the final programme will begin December 9, 2016, at which time the session submission process will be closed. Paper proposals may be submitted up to January 31, 2017.
A limited number of travel grants are available of up to $350 for those traveling within Canada and up to $500 for those traveling internationally. To apply, please fill out the form available here and submit it to: [email protected]
