PEACE AND (IN)SECURITY: 
CANADA'S PROMISE, CANADA'S PROBLEM?
BACS 36th Annual Conference
The University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK
4–6 April 2011
CALL FOR PAPERS

The British Association for Canadian Studies (BACS) is pleased to announce that their 36th annual conference will take place on 4–6 April 2011 at the University of Birmingham. Founded in 1900, the ‘Redbrick’ university is located within the United Kingdom’s second largest and most diverse city. 

Reflecting one of the explicit priorities of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (Government of Canada), the conference aims to interrogate the historical legacies, contemporary realities and cultural myths of the ‘peaceable kingdom'. What constitutes peace in the context of economic instability and political insecurity? Which discourses, images and texts circulate in a time of environmental crisis and social anxiety? How do the actions, events and conflicts of the Canadian past inflect the policies, politics and imaginings of future security? 
The British Association for Canadian Studies invites paper proposals related to notions of peace and (in)security pertaining across, within and beyond the field of Canadian Studies. Proposals for 20-minute papers, to be presented in either English or French, are invited from any single disciplinary or multidisciplinary perspective. Multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and comparative panel proposals, including those from postgraduate students, are welcome.

Paper proposals will be especially appreciated in the following areas:
· identities and insecurities 
· surveillance and security: histories, institutions, discourses, practices 
· cultures of dissent: texts, policies, movements, communities
· internal or external threats, conflicts, and instabilities
· histories, visions and narratives of peace
· geographies, representations and economies of (in)security

Enquiries and proposals to:

Email abstract(s) of 200–300 words and brief CV (please do not exceed one side of A4) which must include your title, institutional affiliation, email and mailing address by 20 November 2010. Submissions will be acknowledged by email. Postgraduate students are especially welcome to submit a proposal and there will be a concessionary conference fee for students. BACS regrets that it is unable to assist participants with travel and accommodation costs.
