The 23rd Biennial Conference of the ACQS will be held October 3 – 6, 2024, at the Hôtel Le Concorde, in Québec City. Here’s the call for papers.

The American Council for Québec Studies invites proposals for papers and panels for our upcoming conference in the fall of 2024. For this conference held in the national capital of Québec, we hope to give space to multiple openings and exchanges. We welcome and will consider proposals related to any aspect of Québec studies, including Québec’s diasporas and the Francophone presence in the Americas. We are open to a wide range of approaches across the Social and Physical Sciences and Humanities. Submissions of both individual papers and complete panels are encouraged.

To submit an abstract: All submissions (abstracts of +/-250 words) are made via Oxford Abstracts at https://app.oxfordabstracts.com/stages/6752/submitter. Conference presentations can be made in French or English. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is April 1, 2024.

To post a panel description on the ACQS website in order to solicit abstracts: Send the title of your proposed session and a short description (+/- 250 words), as well as your name, affiliation, and contact information to Olivia Choplin, Vice President, at ochoplin@elon.edu. To submit a complete session: Each presenter should submit abstracts individually, indicating the full session’s title and its chair or organizer where requested.

The ACQS is happy to announce a discounted group rate at the Hôtel Le Concorde, situated on a splendid site in the national capital. A link for reservations will be posted on the ACQS website in Spring 2024. We remind you that each conference participant must register and become a member of the association, which covers two years and includes a subscription to Québec Studies.
