A few weeks ago, on 11-12 May, we hosted a workshop on transnational feminism. You can read all about it here. The workshop was a tremendous success. The presentations were extremely interesting, thought-provoking, and will make for a very significant edited collection. Check out the video of our first panel for a brief sample.


And now, let’s look onwards to our next workshop: Realities of Canadian Democracy/Réalités de la démocratie canadienne. Organised by our two Wilson Assistant Professors, Julien Mauduit and Jennifer Tunnicliffe, this next workshop seeks to understand Canadian democracy: how, when and even if Canada can be considered a ‘democracy.’ This workshop will take place on 2-3 May 2019. Refer to our call for paper, posted below in French and English, for more detailed information. As is the case with our Wilson workshops, we will provide financial assistance to our panelists and pay for travel expenses and hotel accommodations. More importantly, the goal of every workshop is the creation of an edited volume on the topic. As such, every paper will be considered for a volume with our series at McGill-Queen’s University Press, with a select number chosen for the final version.

Please! Send in your applications (proposal, CV, bio) by 30 September 2018.
