Congress 2011


June 2011 in Fredericton, New Brunswick


About Congress | Congress 2011 SESRN Presentations


About Congress:

Organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Congress brings together thousands of scholars, students, practitioners and policy makers in a different city each year to share ideas, discuss today’s complex issues and enrich their research.

 The University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University will host the 2011 Congress with the theme Coasts and Continents: Exploring people and places.

At Congress, academic associations organize their own conferences. Our network took part in a number of these:
The Canadian Association for Studies in Co-operation (CASC) conference;
The Association for Nonprofit and Social Economy Research (ANSER) conference;
The Canadian Association of Food Studies (CAFS) Conference.

The event addresses wide-ranging issues from theatre, literature and education to history, sociology and international development.


From May 28-June 4, Congress 2011 was co-hosted by the University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick. The theme was Coasts and Continents: Exploring peoples and places.
