Panels and keynote lecture will take place in Dunton Tower 2017.

Off the Record is an interdisciplinary conference that seeks to raise questions concerning the flattening of historical narratives surrounding nation-building practices. The conference presents research papers by graduate students at the MA and PhD levels, as well as from emerging and independent scholars. Themes that will be explored include material culture and the archive; migration and diasporic communities; Indigenous politics, identity and resurgence; decolonial/anti-colonial methodologies and globalisms; urban planning; the built environment and the politics of space; heritage conservation and public history; minor transnationalisms and cultural transfers.

A finalized program is forthcoming.

Keynote speaker: Dr. Monika Kin Gagnon (Communications Studies, Concordia University).
