Call for Papers – Practicing Folklore – Corner Brook, June 17-19, 2013
The theme of practice suggests an underlying impulse within our sometimes disparate folklore and ethnographic projects. The theme acknowledges culture as enacted and admits the idea of rehearsal as a significant aspect to signifying actions and texts. Practice also informs the pragmatic element of our discipline, highlighting researchers, writers and teachers as workers and labourers. Finally, the theme suggests an open-ended view of culture, texts and research that underpins some of our best scholarship.
We encourage paper submissions that work within the conference theme or address the ongoing UNESCO 2003 convention on Intangible Cultural Heritage. As usual, proposals dealing with other topics are welcomed. Applications for panels and workshops are strongly encouraged. The Folklore Studies Association of Canada welcomes scholars and practitioners from all disciplines with projects of interest to folklorists and ethnologists to apply.

Acadian traditional music: At the crossroads of French and Celtic cultures – Intangible cultural heritage conference in Cape Breton University, Sydney, Nova Scotia – 11-13 October 2013
In Octobre 2013, Intangible cultural heritage will be the theme of a major academic conference that will not only bring together researchers who have studied the blending of Acadian and Celtic elements in the musical traditions of the Atlantic Provinces, but will also give them a chance to exchange with scholars who have studied other minority situations. It will be a bilingual event, and will include a concluding concert. The conference will take place in Sydney, Cape Breton, just as the annual Celtic Colours festival is getting under way, providing participants with the opportunity to prolong their stay by getting involved in the festival.
Please submit proposals by 1 February 2013 (which is also the deadline for consideration for a travel subsidy). Proposals, including paper or workshop title, name, brief biographical sketch, and a 200 word abstract should be sent to Ronald Labelle, Department of Languages and Letters, Cape Breton University, Sydney, NS, B1P (email@example.com).
