Call for Proposals – Island Studies: West Coast Canada & Beyond

Call for Proposals – Island Studies: West Coast Canada & Beyond

September 11, 2012

Calling all west coast BC islanders and those interested in the study of islands. We are looking for proposals for presentations that address issues implicated in the complex environmental, socio-cultural, and economic challenges that are the daily reality for island communities on West Coast Canada, USA, and elsewhere. This is a university and community conference to take place May 10, 11, 12, 2013 on Gabriola Island, BC.

We are looking for proposals from scholars, intellectuals, leaders, community members, activists, and community organizations who:
-have a passion for island communities and sustainability or the study of islands and islanders,
-want to learn and share island experiences and scholarship  with islanders from around the globe and regionally from west coast Canada and USA,
-wish to network with like-minded and island-focused individuals.
