2022 Conference

The theme, UNSETTLING VICTORIANS, remains the same. The organizers are excited to invite you to NAVSA 2021 in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, on traditional, ancestral, and unceded Coast Salish territory. The location of the conference, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and historic Stanley Park, features stunning landscapes and seascapes, transpacific and transcontinental connections, and multi-layered political and cultural histories. “Unsettling Victorians,” interpreted in the broadest sense, is inspired by the myriad resonances of our settler-colonial setting in the era of decolonization.

The keynote speakers remain Cannon Schmitt (University of Toronto); Brenna Bhandar (University of London); and Armand Garnet Ruffo (Queen’s University).
