Call for Proposals: Revisiting Human Rights in Canadian History

This two-day workshop seeks to bring together scholars to revisit the history of human rights in Canada, with the goal of publishing an edited volume to be submitted following the workshop.

The goal of this workshop is to reassess and to explore how rights discourses and movements have furthered more complex and sometimes contradictory agendas, and to analyze the benefits and limitations of the human rights project in addressing issues of discrimination, inequality, and oppression in Canadian society.

Deadline for proposals: 7 June 2021

Workshop Dates: 25-26 February 2022
