The Goddess Studies Unit seeks to retrieve the narrative importance of female figures in mythology and religion and works to infuse equity into the nature of exclusion. How does this year's theme, "Religion, Race, and Racism," intersect with female (cis/LGBTQ/inclusive) figures and the study of women in narrative and in culture? Are there goddesses, goddess scholarship, or goddess-centric worship that subvert racialization and/or colonization? Are there figures that have subverted demonization due to race or gender or who have been claimed to combat such "Othering"? Contrarily, are there figures that have been suppressed or marginalized due to race and/or gender that are currently being reclaimed, reinterpreted, or re-discovered? How?

As a writer of poems, novels, and non-fiction, Robert Kroetsch had a tremendous impact on Canadian literature and culture. His body of work has consistently been cited as the standard for innovation in Canadian literature. Likewise, it is nearly impossible to discuss Canadian writing in general without alluding to his criticism.
Understanding Kroetsch's far-reaching influence on Canadian letters, the University of Ottawa's Department of English will be hosting a two-day conference on April 28-29, 2017. Proposals are invited for this major conference. All topics are welcome, including biographical, literary, and new methodologies of reading Kroetsch's many writings.
