ACCUTE Conference

Each year ACCUTE organizes a conference featuring nationally and internationally recognized scholars, and papers by researchers from many parts of Canada. This conference takes place at the annual meeting of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The Congress brings together scholars, teachers, administrators and graduate students associated with more than 100 scholarly and professional associations.

ACCUTE’s conference usually runs for four days, and features multiple sessions in a wide range of fields. The program also regularly includes sessions on professional and pedagogical concerns, as well as joint sessions with a number of other scholarly associations.
