Event description

Description

On the centenary of the end of the First World War, BACS’ 2018 Annual Conference will look beyond the war itself, at its impact upon Canada, engagement with and use of memory, and Canada’s place in the wider world. Change in the past century will very much be explored in the broader context of today’s Canada and its future. Therefore, another key marker, the 50th Anniversary of Pierre Elliott Trudeau becoming prime minister, will be of particular interest, as well as Canada’s role in the ever-shifting politics of 21st century North America, which brings the conference's thematical remit and focus up to the present day.

The conference draws from a number of fields and disciplines, including Indigeneity, Canadian history, Canadian politics, Canadian literature, Quebec, foreign relations etc.

The venue is Senate House, the administrative centre of the University of London, situated in the heart of Bloomsbury in London, with its beautiful garden squares and its numerous cultural and educational institutions. Senate House is noted for its iconic Art Deco design and its impressive Portland stone facade.


We are very honoured and pleased to announce Maeve Conrick and Margaret MacMillan as our keynote speakers.


Please note the following organisational details:

This is a non-residential conference and conference participants will need to organise their own accommodation. There are a number of hotels in the vicinity, including the Tavistock Hotel in Tavistock Square (, only minutes away on foot from Senate House.
