In the context of the recent initialing of the Strategic Partnership Agreement and the negotiations of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) in September 2014, we invite specialists (confirmed scholars and doctoral students) to reflect on the state of the relationship and partnership between Europe and Canada both from a historical perspective and a forward-looking one. Is this new political and economic framework a turning-point in the EU-Canada relationship ?

The conference organizers invite specialists in the fields of political sciences, economics, international relations and international law to provide their analysis on this "modernized" framework.

Performing the Accidental Archive, the fourth annual York University Theatre and Performance Studies Graduate Student Symposium, invites submissions for papers, installations, performances, manifestos, and workshops. In recent years, much theatre and performance studies work has been devoted to investigating, critiquing, and expanding upon the embodiments, objects, places, and practices that comprise the archive. Performing the Accidental Archive is a call to further these discussions by imaginatively exploring the places, practices, objects, and events that are archival despite themselves and that point towards the unintended and incidental remains of our everyday lives and actions.
