The organizing committee of the 10th National Student Conference for Northern Studies of the ACUNS has released the first call for papers for the student conference to be held from November 1 to 3, 2012 in Val-d’Or , Quebec, Canada.

For further information about the conference, please visit our Website at: http://www.uqat.ca/sce2012/.
*Nikan means “the future, to go forward ” in the Anicinape (Algonquin) language. It was included in the conference title because we want to emphasize that the conference will be held on Anicinape territory and that aboriginal, social, and cultural issues will have a prominent place.
