Linguistic Field(s): Ling & Literature

Call Deadline: 15-Oct-2013

Meeting Description:

The Association of Italian Canadian Writers (AICW) brings together a community of writers, critics, academics, and other artists who promote Italian Canadian literature and culture. The AICW's mission is to support and encourage the expression and dissemination of the Italian Canadian experience within an ethnoculturally diverse society.

The AICW is announcing its 15th biennial conference to be held in Montreal, May 1 to 4, 2014. The conference seeks readings and papers that illustrate the building of bridges (generational, linguistic, cultural, literary styles, etc.) and encourage discussion between Italian-Canadian writers and other literary, artistic, cultural and academic communities across Canada and beyond.

Call for Papers:

The Association of Italian Canadian Writers (AICW) is accepting proposals for its 15th biennial conference. Academics and researchers, writers and artists from all disciplines - both inside and outside the Italian-Canadian sphere - are invited to submit proposals to present new works in English, French, or Italian. Graduate students are encouraged to participate. Possible topics include, but are not limited to: Italian Canadiana and literary criticism, youth fiction, literary education, film, media, the short story, autobiography, religion, history, translation studies and cultural hybridity.

To submit individual papers (20 min.) that discuss recent publications by Italian-Canadian authors or which give a comparative analysis of Italian-Canadian writing and other literatures, send a 100-word abstract and a 60-word biography.


Send a title for the panel, 100-word abstract for each paper, as well as 60-word biography for each panelist, and contact information for all panelists (maximum three) and chairperson.

Literary Readings (15 min.):

Send 60-word biography, a 200-word excerpt of the text to be read (prose or play) or four poems (max. 40 lines). Preference will be given to readings (and performances) of new works.

Please note that once a proposal has been accepted, a conference registration fee ($65.00) will be requested for all presenters who are not AICW members in good standing.
