2013 B.C. Studies Conference
February 6, 2013
May 2-4, 2013 at Douglas College in New Westminster, BC
Located within the Lower Mainland region, New Westminster is situated on the banks of the Fraser River, where vast runs of salmon have characterized and transformed the environment during their migrations between the coast and the interior over many millennia.
The traditional territory and home of the Qayqayt Nation, the area has long been a significant place for Aboriginal peoples. New Westminster is also the onetime capital of colonial British Columbia, a port for trade and travel, a transportation hub linking the communities of the southern Fraser River region and beyond, and a modern city in the midst of urban revival and revitalization.
Douglas College, as a place of learning and scholarship that is undergoing its own transformation within the British Columbia post-secondary landscape, is delighted to host the conference.
