Robarts' Graduate Conference

Every year Robarts hosts a Graduate Conference on a timely topic in Canadian studies. Each year the conference is getting larger as its reputation as a premier place to present student work is becoming more widely known.  The aim of the conference is to give graduate students an opportunity to present their work in a premiere and professional environment. To that end, students are asked to prepare a paper and present their research to their future colleagues. With York professors as discussants, the students are given invaluable feedback and encouraged to refine their work and submit it for publication. Students are also encouraged to submit their work to be included in a special edition of the Robarts publication, Canada Watch.

This year's conference Transgressing the Nation-State: Constructs of Canadian Identity will be held on April 20-21, 2017 at York University. For more detailed information about the conference and registration please visit the official Graduate Conference website.
