This is an invitation for session proposals for the GU-CAG Conference, which will be held in Quebec City from August 6 to 10 2018 on the theme: “Appreciating Difference/Appréier la difference”.
Therefore, the IGU Commission of African Studies invites proposals for sessions under the following indicative but not exhaustive list of themes.
Session chairs are encouraged to develop session abstracts that will attract papers, which respond to and/or reflect on the theme of the conference, which is: “Appreciating difference/Apprécier la difference”.
A session is generally constituted of 3-4 paper presentations of 15 minutes each plus five minutes for questions/discussions. The presentations will be led by the session chair. Session chairs may propose full sessions (session abstract and all papers) or only a session abstract, which will be completed after the allocation of abstracts, when the call for papers closes.
Over and above submitting the Session proposals online, please also send a copy of the said to
