Meeting Description:

Managing Diversity and Social Cohesion: The Canadian Experience
5th International Conference of Central European Canadianists
Sofia, Bulgaria
16-18 October 2009

"Diversité culturelle et cohésion sociale: L'expérience canadienne'
5eme Colloque international de canadianistes de l'Europe Centrale
Sofia, Bulgarie
16-18 Octobre 2009

The theme of the conference is intended to reflect one of Canada's central
strengths. This strength is the remarkable way in which, though a country marked
by unusual diversity - linguistic, cultural, ethnic, regional and political, to
name only the most obvious - it has nevertheless been able to contain these
dynamic forces within a state of creative tension that has shaped the society as
a whole. Taking this as our starting point, we invite individual papers from a
wide variety of disciplines dealing with all aspects of the study of Canada,
including but not limited to topics such as:

Cultural Diversity
Democratic Processes and Human Rights
Social Cohesion
Canadian Polity
Social Diversity in Canadian Literature
Emigrant Writing
The City in Literature
Intercultural Dialogues in Literature
Canadian Cultural Narratives
Cultural Regionalism
A Nation in the Making: Historical Perspectives

Le thème du colloque est conçu autour des points forts du Canada, notamment la
manière remarquable dont ce pays arrive à gérer sa diversité aussi bien
linguistique que culturelle, ethnique, régionale et politique. Comment ce pays a
pu maîtriser ses forces dynamiques en maintenant une tension créatrice qui a
formé la société dans son ensemble. Prenant ce phénomène en tant que point de
départ, nous vous invitons à participer avec des communications de tous les
domaines de spécialisation traitant tous les aspects de la société canadienne.
Parmi les sujets possibles :

Cohésion sociale.
