Request for Proposals: UBC Ambassadors and Subventions programs, Congress 2019
I am writing as the Academic Convenor for Congress 2019, to be held at UBC from June 1-7, 2019. Working with a team at UBC and with the Federation of the Social Sciences and Humanities, I am in charge of academic and cultural programming for the Congress. The theme of this conference is “Circles of Conversation.” The conference will showcase creative critical engagements in literature, visual arts, theatre, and music. Particular attention will be focused on productive scholarly relations with Indigenous communities.
Our objective is to have a range of critical and cultural programming that highlights the research being done at UBC in the humanities and social sciences, and with ties to the local community. There will also be programming targeted at families of delegates.
To this end, I am reaching out to colleagues in the faculties of Arts and Education to ask for your input and to invite you to consider applying for two initiatives we have created.
