About the Conference

As a member of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS), the Canadian Association of Slavists holds its annual conference in conjunction with the Federation’s Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. This event is organized in partnership with a host Canadian University and usually takes place at the end of May / early June. Other learned societies comprising the CFHSS also attend the congress, turning the event into a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue and networking. The congress routinely holds a book fair, featuring many university presses and scholarly publishers.

Exceptionally, in 2020, the Canadian Association of Slavists will hold its conference as part of the 10th World Congress of the International Council for Central and East European Studies (ICCEES), which it is hosting at Concordia University in Montreal, Québec from 3-8 August, 2021.
