CASCA/IUAES2017 Conference in Ottawa
International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES) and Canadian Anthropology Society (CASCA)
The Conference/InterCongress will be hosted at the University of Ottawa, on the unceded, traditional territory of the Algonquins of the Ottawa River Watershed. Canada’s capital city is built on the banks of the Kitchisippi, the Great River, the Ottawa River; the Sacred Chaudière Falls and Islands have served as a meeting place of great spiritual importance to the people of North America since time immemorial. In 2017, Canada celebrates its 150 birthday. Join us for our Conference/InterCongress May 2-7 2017, in the National Capital Region!

Language practices at CASCA Conferences
In response to concerns raised by members about the place of French at the joint CASCA-IUAES conference, the CASCA Executive Committee would like to issue the following statement:
CASCA is a bilingual association, which has francophone and Anglophone members. We promote the activities and defend the interests of our members in both English and French, and our executive committee is made up of francophone and anglophone members. We are committed to doing what we do in both of Canada’s official languages: our website and all of our written communications are in both French and English, and our publications, the journal Anthropologica and our web-based bi-annual news magazine Culture have English and French content. Our annual conference also functions in both official languages, although we recognize the challenges that this presents for organizers and participants. Since the exchange of ideas is the very purpose of this event, it is crucial that everyone be able to express themselves and understand others. As a bilingual association, we welcome the exchange of ideas in both French and English. This means that papers, round-tables and poster sessions at our conferences can be presented in either French or English or through a combination of both languages. We fully respect the right of our members to present in the language of their choice
