TransCanada Three will be organized around a set of related keywords to broaden and
strengthen the discursive flows produced in the previous TransCanada conferences. It will pay
explicit attention to literature, arts, and the media, but also to the educational, political, cultural,
and physical ecologies that have helped, or may in the future help, Canada to renew itself and to
embrace its emergent as well as its traditional selves. We would like to invite proposals that
address the following keywords:

- First Nations: Treaty Rights and Justice in the Anglo-French history of Canada
- Acadia: Exile and Return
- Diasporas, Transnationalism / Transculturalism
- Radical and Transformative Methodologies and Pedagogies
- Hemispheric Studies
- Affective Geographies
- Ecology and Mobility

 Please submit proposals of up to 300 words for 20-minute papers for the research sessions that
address the above themes or submit, along with other scholars, joint proposal/s for particular
panels under the central keywords listed above. We also welcome proposals for artistic
presentations (video, short film, photography, etc.) that can be showcased during the

 TransCanada Three will again feature a special doctoral students’ plenary session. Doctoral
