The Midwest Association for Canadian Studies will be partnering with the Consulate of Canada in Minneapolis to host the 2012 MWACS conference in Grand Forks on Oct. 5-6, 2012.
On Friday, Oct. 5, we will bring in speakers engaged in issues related to border security in the Great Plains and Prairies. Both the University and the Consulate have a strong relationship with the border patrol agencies in the United States and Canada, as well as with government officials in the region and members of the military at the Grand Forks Air Force base. Our hope is to encourage a broad-ranging discussion involving scholars and practitioners.
On Saturday, Oct. 6, panels will represent a wide range of papers by MWACS scholars, not just about the border, but about the topics of your research, again in the hope of encouraging a broad-ranging and interdisciplinary discussion.
Contact Timothy Pasch or Kyle Conway, both UND Communication Program faculty, for further information. For online registration, visit: http://mwacs.undborderlands.org./page9/index.html
