About the conference

Featuring an array of celebrated Alberta writers and scholars, as well as presenters from across Canada, Quebec, and the world, the 2016 ACQL conference takes its inspiration from the Western Canadian milieu of this year's Congress. As ground zero for debates about oil sands, energy, and the environment, Alberta is a site that invites us to explore the roles that literature and criticism have played over time as vehicles for intervening in sociopolitical debates and for variously shaping or redefining the terms of social engagement in Canada and Québec.



Only those people who are registered for Congress 2016 and have added the Association for Canadian and Québec Literatures (ACQL, #7) to their Congress registration may attend this conference. Please note that conference registration fees are separate from the association's membership fees.
