In collaboration with the Canadian Studies Centre at Aarhus University, the Nordic Association for Canadian Studies is pleased to publish its 2nd call for submissions for papers for the thirteenth Nordic international, cross-disciplinary Canadian Studies conference, to be held in Aarhus, Denmark, in August 2022.

The theme of the conference – ‘From far and wide’ – may be taken literally or metaphorically. We are looking especially, but not exclusively, for contributions in the following fields:

- history / political science / literature & the arts / aboriginal affairs /
- Arctic & other regional studies / human & cultural geography / biography

Keynote speakers will be announced on the conference website as soon as they are confirmed.

Presentations could for example explore a thematic or a regional approach. Presentations will be allowed 20 minutes + time for discussion, and will be organized in thematic, cross-disciplinary workshops potentially focused on some of the following topics:

- cross-cultural encounters - regions of Canada
- individuals, groups, institutions - the Arctic & the North
- ideologies & experiences - indigenous peoples
- migration & settlement  - animals, plants and the environment
- political incorporation - energy and transport

An abstract of the proposal, maximum 150 words, with a brief CV of the author(s), maximum 40 words, should be submitted in MS Word format (.doc or .docx) by 01 February 2022 to the Conference Committee at the following address:
