The Hungarian Studies Association of Canada invites proposals for its 26th annual conference, to be held in Fredericton, on May 28-30th, 2011.The annual theme for the 2011 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is “Coasts and Continents: Exploring People and Places.” We invite paper proposals that tie this theme into Hungarian studies, by examining issues such as migration and immigration, Hungarian explorers in Canada and around the world, as well as the diaspora and its contact with people of different cultures.

HSAC is an interdisciplinary organization and we welcome papers from a wide range of disciplines, including: economics, film studies, the fine arts, history, literature, political science, public policy, sociology. In addition to this year’s special theme, the Conference Committee welcomes submissions exploring all aspects of Hungarian culture, history, politics and society, both in Hungary and abroad. Papers may be presented in English, Hungarian, or French.

The deadline for submitting proposals is December 15th, 2010. Your proposal should contain the paper’s title, an abstract summarizing your topic with key arguments and sources, as well as a brief curriculum vitae. Please submit your abstract and paper title by the deadline and in the language in which you wish to present.

Please send your proposals to Judy Young, HSAC’s Secretary who will forward them to the Conference Committee. You may want to copy the members of the Conference Committee.
