Colloque de jeunes chercheurs
American Council for Quebec Studies
Travel funding is available for Berkeley graduate students presenting at ACQS
The ACQS is thrilled to announce an Emerging Scholars Colloquium to be held in conjunction with its 2018 biennial convention.  With the participation of the Association Internationale des Etudes Québécoises (AIEQ), we plan to host a pre-convention series of panels for graduate students whose research touches on Quebec, Francophone Canada, and Franco-America.  Acceptance into this colloquium is competitive, and the scholars chosen will benefit from close connections with other graduate students as well as from mentorship from senior scholars who will be affiliated with the colloquium. The scholars chosen, whom we expect also to attend significant portions of the full ACQS convention, will receive some financial and travel support. We further will encourage the best paper(s) from the colloquium to be submitted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal Québec Studies.
To make application to this mini-colloquium:   With an abstract of +/- 250 words, go to the ACQS website ( ) and follow the links to the conference pages and the Proposal submission site,
Be sure to click on “Emerging Scholars Colloquium” in the subject area.  Deadline for application for the Colloquium:  March 1st, 2018.
Comparative or interdisciplinary proposals, in English or French, in social sciences as well as in humanities, are encouraged.
Application for the colloquium will also serve as application for the general conference.  In the case your proposal is not accepted for the competitive colloquium, your application will automatically be considered with the general proposals for the larger conference.  We welcome, of course, all applications from all scholars, including other graduate students, for the general conference by its deadline of April 1st, 2018.
 Travel funding is available for Berkeley graduate students presenting at ACQS
Contact ACQS for all questions regarding abstract submission.
