Past Conferences

Every year in late May-early June, CASDW organizes a bilingual, 2- to 3-day conference at the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities (formerly known as The Learneds). The Congress itself is organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Here you will find links to the programs and Web sites of some of the past conferences.
