ESAC’s 2024 Call for Papers for the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is out!

“Sustaining Shared Futures”

Location: McGill University

ESAC Conference Dates: 12 – 14 June 2024

Proposal Deadline: 12 January 2024

While alarming images of a warming planet infuse the concept with a critical sense of urgency, ‘sustainability’ transcends even the immense challenges posed by climate change, urging recognition of the interconnectedness of human existence and global action on the overlapping social, economic, environmental, and technological issues that threaten our future.

As members of the global community, we share the responsibility to take on this multi-faceted challenge of a lifetime by way of concerted action across disciplines, bringing into focus its unequal impact, the bounds of our planet, and in turn, our solutions.

For this 2024 edition, enmeshing the knowledge of diverse contexts, and amplifying Black and Indigenous perspectives, Congress invites scholars, students, policymakers, and community members to reflect on what remains collectively attainable – and what must be done – in the face of this vast and complex imperative in order to bring forth solutions for today, and sustain systems of tomorrow.

You can submit your proposal on our Abstract Submission Portal at esac.ca
