HUNGARIAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION OF CANADA (HSAC)
28th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
June 1 - 3, 2013
University of Victoria, British Columbia
We believe that this theme, with suggested elaborations below, fits particularly
well with the variety of disciplines and fields of study represented by our membership and covers a broad range of topics.
We would welcome proposals that address the relationship of Hungarians with neighbouring
peoples and cultures; the evolution and diversity of the Hungarian diaspora in the
context of multi-ethnic societies; the situation of minorities inside Hungary and
of Hungarian immigrants and minorities outside of Hungary. We also welcome papers
that explore the interplay of the centre and the periphery (geographically,
historically, philosophically, in language, literature, and the arts, among others);
address the challenges of social or political inequality, marginalization, and diversity.
The Committee will consider other topics not listed here that relate to the overall theme.
Submissions should include a 200-300 word abstract and a brief,
maximum one-page cv. Proposals will be accepted in English, Hungarian, or French. The deadline to submit proposals is January 15th 2013.
Proposals should be sent by e-mail to the Secretary, Judy Young at firstname.lastname@example.org and to the Chair of the
Program Committee, Judith Szapor at email@example.com. We will notify the authors of proposals of the
Committee's decisions by February 28th 2013.
