The organizers continue to be confident that this will be a live event – the first chance for all our members to get together since the previous CEACS conference in Prague in 2018. In any case, however, should the circumstances change, the conference will take place online. The Conference Organizing Committee welcomes papers in English or French on literary, cultural, political, geographical, environmental, historical, artistic, as well as business and economics-related perspectives of the conference theme, including (but not limited to) the following topics: cultural landscapes indigenous landscapes multicultural and transnational landscapes climate fiction petrol fiction and other resource management induced landscapes geological landscapes

– demographic landscapes
– business landscapes (tourism, hospitality, finance, management, accountancy, foreign trade, EU-Canada relations)
– economic landscapes
The intended program will feature keynote lectures, multiple thematic sessions, panel discussions, sessions for young Canadianists, as well as a teacher-training session and film screening. Presentations will be 20 minutes, followed by Q&A at the end of each session. PhD, MA and BA students are also welcome to participate with papers (with the option for BA students to deliver 10-minute presentations). Abstracts of papers (maximum 250 words) and a one-paragraph CV for those planning to deliver papers should be submitted by e-mail to the organizers at email@example.com and at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 22, 2022. Participants will be notified of the acceptance of their paper proposals by May 3rd, 2022.
