We are pleased to announce the Call for Proposals (CFP) for CAPAL17: Foundations & Futures: Critical Reflections on the Pasts, Presents, and Possibilities of Academic Librarianship. This will be the fourth annual conference of the Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians (CAPAL) to be held May 30th – June 1st as part of Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences 2017 in Toronto, Ontario which lies in the territory of the Haudenosaunee and the Mississaugas of the New Credit River.
This conference provides an opportunity for the academic library community to critically examine and discuss together the ways in which our profession is influenced by its social, political, and economic environments. By considering academic librarianship within its historical contexts, its presents, and its possible futures, and by situating it within evolving cultural frameworks and structures of power, we can better understand the ways in which academic librarianship may reflect, reinforce, or challenge these contexts both positively and negatively.
The deadline for proposals is the 23rd of December, 2016.
