The Fourteenth Global Studies Conference will be held at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, 5-6 June 2021. We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, virtual lightning talks, virtual posters, or colloquia addressing one of the following themes:

Theme 1: Networks of Economy and Trade
Theme 2: The Power of Institutions
Theme 3: Vectors of Society and Cultures
Theme 4: Ecological Foundations

2021 SPECIAL FOCUS - Life after Pandemic: Towards a New Global Biopolitics?

We are trying to move away from the either/or of place-based or online conferences. For whichever way you choose to participate, we will offer a blended conference experience. You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change. The choice to participate virtually could also be a moral decision – for the planet, for security, or when the financial burden of travel is too great. We aim to foster spaces that align with principles of social justice and community development.

We also want to be ready for the possibility of place-based postponement due to COVID-19. If we are forced to postpone, the online engagement will still go ahead, and your registration will allow you to join the conference in person in a later year.
This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.


We welcome the submission of presentation proposals at any time of the year up until 30 days before the start of the conference. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission.
