ACCUTE Conference

ACCUTE is excited to announce a general call for papers for our 2018 conference, which will take place 26-29 May 2018 at The University of Regina.


ACCUTE 2018: General Pool CFP

ACCUTE’s general call welcomes papers in all fields of English studies.  Proposals are due by 15 November.
NOTE: We have extended the deadline to 20 November, 2017.
ACCUTE will also accommodate striking College faculty in Ontario, given that the preparation of conference proposals is among the professional services they have withdrawn as part of their labour dispute. Depending on the length of the strike, we will tentatively set a special deadline for striking college faculty only, set two weeks from the return-to-work date agreed to by union members. Please let us know if you have questions:

General Pool Submission instructions: Please submit all general pool proposals through our online submission form.

All proposals will be anonymously vetted.  See answers to some FAQs about general pool proposals.

ACCUTE’s annual conference features nationally and internationally recognized scholars, and papers from across the range of periods, topics, and methodologies of English studies.  Our programs also include sessions on professional and pedagogical concerns, as well as joint sessions with a number of other scholarly associations.

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 close to a 100 scholarly and professional associations. ACCUTE’s conference usually runs for four days.
