Conference call for papers

As the end of the semester is fast approaching, one thing that it is important to remember is the call for papers for the Thompson Rivers University Philosophy, History, and Politics Conference!

The conference runs from January 13th to 15th of 2011, and includes a Keynote address by Historian Dr John Sandlos from Memorial University in Newfoundland. His speech, "Scholarship and Citizenship: History, Memory, and the Environment in the Public Realm" will be followed by a wine and cheese social. Presentations will be conducted on both Friday and Saturday during the day, with presentations being grouped together by theme. The conference concludes with a Superhero themed banquet on Saturday night, with guest speaker Philosopher Dr Jeff McLaughlin presenting his research “Ten Cent Seductions and Other Comic Book ‘Issues’”.

To attend the conference, formal abstracts must be submitted by no later than November 26th. In addition, students who wish to attend the conference but not present a paper must also register. Please send all submissions to the conference website
