Vienna Lectures in Canadian Studies (VLCS) / Conférences de Vienne en Études Canadiennes (CVEC)

Dear colleagues, fellow Canadianists and friends of Canada, The Centre for Canadian Studies at the University of Vienna has initiated an annual, bilingual lecture series entitled Vienna Lectures in Canadian Studies (VLCS) / Conférences de Vienne en Études Canadiennes (CVEC), which will be hosted jointly by the Department of English and American Studies and the Department of Romance Languages. The Lectures will be published as Working Papers in Canadian Studies on the centre’s website (you might notice we have a new logo and a new website!). We are delighted to cordially invite you to the inaugural lecture, for which we were able to win Professor Ruth Phillips of the Department of Art History and Canada Research Chair in Modern Culture at Carleton University, Ottawa, who many of you might know as the leading expert in Native North American art and culture. Her work on Aboriginal modernities has redefined the entire field of art history in Canada (and beyond). See also: Her talk is entitled “Between Rocks and Hard Places: Indigenous Lands, Settler Art Histories and the ‘Battle for the Woodlands.’” For more info, please visit the centre’s website: The inaugural lecture will take place on January 21, 2016 at 6:30pm at lecture hall C2 on the university campus (AAKH, Spitalgasse 2-4, 1090 Vienna – courtyard 2). We would hereby like to invite you most cordially to this lecture, which will be followed by a reception, kindly supported by the Embassy of Canada and the Student Union. Attached, you’ll also find a poster for the event. Very best wishes, Jörg Türschmann, Director Alexandra Ganser, Executive Director Alexandra Hauke, Executive Assistant – Centre for Canadian Studies University of Vienna Department of English & American Studies Spitalgasse 2-4, Hof 8.3 1090 Vienna Tel.: +43-1-4277-424 15 Email: Web: VLCS_Ruth Phillips_Invitation Poster
