Call for Paper, Panel and Roundtable Proposals: Canadian Political Science Association Local and Urban Politics Section



The Local and Urban Politics Section of the Canadian Political Science Association is very pleased to invite proposals for panels, roundtables and individual presentations for the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Political Science Association, taking place at Ryerson University, in downtown Toronto, Canada, from May 30 to June 1, 2017. As Canada’s flagship generalist political science conference, we seek high-quality research on all aspects of urban politics in Canada, the United States, Europe, and beyond. Please visit this link for more information and submission instructions: https://cpsa-acsp.ca/cfp/cfp_index.php.

Next year is the 150th anniversary of Canada’s formation in 1867. As part of the Association’s broader “Confederation at 150” series, we also invite proposals related to the theme of Cities in the Canadian Federation. We seek proposals that explore the role of cities or urbanization in the development of the Canadian state and/or the impact of Canadian federal and provincial politics and policies on Canadian urban politics or urbanization. Paper topics may include: When and how do cities “matter” in Canadian provincial or federal state-building? Under what circumstances have urban questions climbed federal or provincial policy agendas? How has urbanization transformed political competition or political behaviour since Confederation? How has the role of local governments changed since Confederation? Does the constitutional (non-)status of Canadian cities still matter in an era of complex multilevel governance? We welcome proposals for papers, panels, and/or roundtable discussions on these and related themes. More information on the “Confederation at 150” series can be found here: https://cpsa-acsp.ca/cfp/cfp_callF.php.

All proposals are due by November 4, 2016. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to welcoming you to Toronto!
