It’s Time to Reconnect with your Canadian Studies Colleagues in Niagara Falls, Ontario

The Mid-Atlantic-New England Council for Canadian Studies (MANECCS) is currently accepting papers from all academic disciplines for its 38th conference to be held at the Marriott Fallsview in Niagara Falls, Ontario between October 20 and 22, 2022. More information on the conference will be available at

After a COVID two-year delay, we are excited to get back to the business of talking Canada!  Over the past 37 years, MANECCS has brought together scholars from across academic disciplines and from both public and private sectors in education, business, and government.  At these conferences, scholars explore complex topics relevant to Canada and its position in the world; past, present, and future. 

The committee is happy to review individual paper or poster proposals, panels, and roundtables on all topics and from all disciplines in Canadian studies. Given this year’s location in Niagara Falls, the organization is especially interested in putting together special interdisciplinary sessions on borders, tourism, and energy. Niagara Falls also has a rich local history and we encourage papers that explore this place.

We also encourage special issues on Canada’s response to COVID on both the domestic and international stage.

MANECCS is eager to continue the recent tradition of accepting undergraduate researchers as individual scholars or as part of an undergraduate research plenary sessions. We ask that faculty encourage their undergraduate as well as their graduate students to submit paper, posters, panel, or roundtable proposals.

MANECCS will continue to award a few scholarships to students and those just embarking on their careers so as to help cover the cost of travel.  The 2022 scholarships will be the first to carry the George Sulzner Memorial Award title in honor of our departed colleague, champion, and friend.
