ACQS "Emerging Scholars" CFP - New Orleans, November 2018

The ACQS is thrilled to announce an Emerging Scholars Colloquium to be held in conjunction with its 2018 biennial convention.  With the participation of the Association Internationale des Etudes Québécoises (AIEQ), we plan to host a pre-convention series of panels for graduate students whose research touches on Quebec, Francophone Canada, and Franco-America.  Acceptance into this colloquium is competitive, and the scholars chosen will benefit from close connections with other graduate students as well as from mentorship from senior scholars who will be affiliated with the colloquium.

2017 Enders Symposium Panels available for viewing.

ACSUS is pleased to release videos of the three "2017 Enders Symposium on Canada-United States Relations" panels that took place as part of our 24th Biennial conference in Las Vegas last October. ACSUS is grateful to David Biette of the Council of State Governments for organizing the Symposium.  Generous funding was provided by the Thomas O. and Gaetana Enders Foundation.  

Below are the Youtube links to each of these three panels, along with a brief description of each panel.
