Liminal spaces: Two Days of Rural Canada
Seeing Canada though a rural lens; the places in‐between

When considering Canada, most people think of Canadian cities or the wonder of its vast wilderness. We often overlook, sometimes literally, rural Canada. This conference will consider the world between the cities and the wilderness, those liminal spaces, and the people, culture, politics, and issues of concern within them.

We invite scholars from a range of disciplines who are examining life in rural Canada, and welcome and encourage students, so do not be deterred if your CV is yet to be filled with the remarkable contributions you will someday make.

For an individual paper proposal, please submit an abstract of your presentation (maximum 250 words) and a one‐page CV identifying institutional affiliation and key scholarly contributions.

For a panel proposal, please provide a brief abstract for each presentation (max 250 words each) and a brief overview of the theme of the panel (max 250 words) along with short biographies of each presenter (also max 250 words). We expect all sessions to be maximum 90 minutes regardless of the number of presenters in a proposed panel.

Please send all proposals and inquires to Dan Malleck, Director, Centre for Canadian Studies through the Centre’s email address:
