UBC Okanagan and BC Studies Conference


The University of British Columbia Okanagan is proud to host an international conference in association with BC Studies on:

Sustainability and Change:  Studies in B C's Past, Present & Future Communities

May 5 to 7, 2011

Keynote Speaker: Mike Harcourt

Title of Presentation:  “Sustainable Cities and Communities.”

We invite scholars in all disciplines to explore this theme as this conference will offer multiple perspectives on where we regard cultural and environmental sustainability and change amongst various stakeholders in our society. We welcome panels, sessions and individual papers in the traditional areas of BC Studies as well as symposia and presentations on a range of subjects:  the arts and sciences, First Nations, fine arts, professional and community associations, and government agencies and representatives. 

We especially encourage colleagues in fields as diverse as water quality, agriculture, forestry, tourism, ecology, immigration, and land use to submit proposals related to community sustainability issues in B.C. Other colleagues may consider examining directions in BC's social, health, industrial, and environmental policies. Further, studies from, and about First Nations' communities are particularly encouraged.

More conference details can be found here.
