“Borders Without Boundaries” is the theme of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS) 2014 Congress within which the Canadian Communication Association (CCA) will hold its Annual Conference May 28-30, 2014 at the Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario. St. Catharines is located approximately 100 kilometers from Toronto. We are calling for proposals that explore, critique and extend this theme as well as for proposals on any other themes relevant to Communication Studies.
The CCA keynote address will be delivered by Jodi Dean, Professor of Political Science at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and author of such books as Blog Theory (2010), Democracy and Other Neoliberal Fantasies (2009), and Aliens in America: Conspiracy Cultures from Outerspace to Cyberspace (1998).
We invite scholars and professionals to submit proposals that develop the range and depth of scholarship in communication studies. Proposals may take the form of:
Panels (no more than 4 papers are permitted)
Roundtables or Workshops
Performances or Screenings
In order to facilitate conversation on the changing university and the realities of precarious (“part-time,” Contract Academic Staff, adjunct, limited term, etc.) employment at universities generally and in Communication Studies in particular, we encourage submission of proposals for panels, individual papers, or roundtables on this topic.
To submit, visit our “Submit a proposal” to submit.
