Download the Program for the 2010 Conference

HSAC has been holding its annual conferences for nearly three decades under the umbrella of the Canadian Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences’ Congress which convenes each year on the campus of a different Canadian university. In 2010 the Federation’s Congress will be meeting at Concordia University, in the heart of Montreal, from May 28 to June 4. Over seventy scholarly associations will be participating. For further information visit the Congress’ website: For information on tourism in Montreal visit the Montreal Chamber of Commerce website:

Since the main theme of the Congress this year will be “Connected Understanding/Le savoir branché” the focus of HSAC’s meeting will be Hungary-Canada connections. Of course papers on other themes, especially Hungarian-North American interactions, will be welcome. Papers given at HSAC conferences in the past have sometimes been published in the journal Hungarian Studies Review and/or the Association’s “Occasional Papers in Hungarian Studies” series. HSAC (along with HAS) is a co-sponsor of the HSR.

Please indicate your intention to attend our conference by sending us the title and an abstract of your proposed paper along with a short c.v. by January 29th 2010. You should also indicate what audio-visual equipment you will need. You can send these to me, Nándor Dreisziger (chair of the program committee): or to one of the committee’s other members: Judith Szapor of Montreal’s McGill University (, or Christopher Adam of Ottawa’s Carleton University ( ). Chris is Montreal-based and is in charge of local arrangements for the HSAC Conference.
