CSDC CONFERENCE – CALL FOR PAPERS
Democracy and Diversity
April 24-25, 2020, Montréal, QC
Canada and democracies across the globe face a broad array of important normative and empirical questions with regard to diversity. What avenues are available to immigrants, ethnocultural citizens, or other minority groups to be heard by decision-makers? How have both citizens and institutions responded to this growth in diversity? How do these responses vary across democratic contexts?
For the second edition of its triennial conference, the Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship (CSDC) invites a broad, multidisciplinary range of paper submissions that address these questions. The conference will include a series of panels for the invited papers, a poster session for graduate students, as well as roundtables. We are organizing panels around the following subthemes, with an emphasis on diversity:
- Democratic Politics
While the focus is on diversity, we welcome submissions on topics related to any of the CSDC’s three research axes. We strongly encourage papers that place Canada in a comparative context. Selected participants will be expected to provide complete papers by April 3, 2020.
To apply, please send the following information 1) paper submission (title, list of authors, and abstract of no more than 250 words) and 2) up to three suggested panels to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15, 2019. Paper submissions are welcome in English or French.
