TWENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL TWO DAYS OF CANADA CONFERENCE NOVEMBER 4-5, 2010 THE SIXTIES, CANADIAN-STYLE Where Have All the Sixties Gone? CALL FOR PAPERS For more than two decades, the Two Days of Canada conference has been one of Canada?s premiere interdisciplinary gatherings. Each year, academics, graduate students, undergraduates, and community members representing a wide range of disciplines and interests meet to share knowledge and expertise about matters of importance to Canadians. The theme for the 24th annual conference is ?THE SIXTIES, CANADIAN-STYLE: Where Have All the Sixties Gone?? The conference will be held at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, on Thursday, November 4, and Friday, November 5, 2010. The 1960s was a period of tremendous ferment that still captures our imagination today. From the rise of antiwar activism, to the emergence of nationalist movements and new nation-building projects, to calls for women?s and gay liberation, to the flowering of new musical, cinematic, and theatrical forms, the era ushered in profound social, political, and cultural changes not only in Canada but also around the world. This conference proposes to place Canada at the centre of this historic moment, allowing participants to explore how Canadians both contributed to and were influenced by the dramatic transformations that swept the globe during this tumultuous time. The Two Days of Canada conference invites papers reflecting all disciplinary approaches to ?THE SIXTIES, CANADIAN-STYLE.? Possible topics include but are not limited to: ? The arts in ?60s Canada in an international context ? The impact of the Vietnam War in Canada and on U.S.-Canadian relations ? Second-wave feminism ? Liberatory social and political movements in Canada ? Students, universities, and radical pedagogy ? Counterculture communities in Canada ? 1960s-era cultural expressions of Canadian identity ? Global political change and linkages to Canadian politics ? Politics, culture, and mass media ? Trudeaumania ? The October crisis ? New social programs in Canada ?
