FSAC, the Folklore Studies Association of Canada, announces its annual meeting for 2011. The meeting will take place in Edmonton, the capital of the province of Alberta, May 12-14, 2011.

CALL FOR PAPERS, Workshops or Roundtables

The conference theme this year is Folklore of the Pioneer Experience. The Pioneer experience is associated with the Prairies and with the brave pioneers who settled the Canadian west, living in dugouts and struggling to till virgin soil as they made a home in their new Canadian space. But in many senses the Pioneer experience characterizes the life of all Canadians. The struggles of the settlers of the Atlantic Provinces preceded those of the Prairie Pioneers, but they were no less significant. Similarly, the settlers of the Pacific coast broke new ground as they established their life in Canada. The experience of Canadian aboriginals was no less of a Pioneer experience. They had to deal with new realities and new demands, pioneering behaviors that would allow them to live with their new neighbors. In keeping with the Pioneer theme, the organizers of this year's conference invite paper proposals and proposals for roundtables and workshops that deal with the pioneer experience in all its aspects. We also invite papers and panels on a broad range of themes dealing with the folklore of Canada. Proposals dealing with other topics will also be considered. Please send proposals for papers, roundtables and workshops to Natalie Kononenko at by January 31, 2011.
