The Inuit Studies Conference (ISC) is a multidisciplinary and international conference that brings together university researchers and students, as well as professionals, directors, teachers, decision-makers, etc. from Inuit organizations, institutions, and governments. It is the largest academic conference in the world about Inuit peoples and territories. The conference also includes cultural and artistic activities of interest to the general public.

We invite Elders, knowledge-bearers, community advocates, teachers, researchers, artists, policy-makers, students and others to submit proposals for individual or group presentations. In addition, we invite proposals for thematic sessions, roundtables, panel discussions, workshops, and seminars on specific topics of interest, as well as for cultural activities, exhibits, and performances. The Inuit Studies Conference is an international and multidisciplinary conference showcasing both Inuit traditional knowledge and expertise as well as academic research from a wide variety of disciplines on topics relating to Inuit peoples and the Inuit homeland. This year’s conference theme is Tukisiqattautiniq “Understanding Each Other”. The organizing committee particularly welcomes proposals that encourage understanding and dialogue between peoples and generations. This year’s conference logo extends the theme of understanding to the natural world. Anyone interested in submitting an abstract for a presentation or in organizing a thematic session, roundtable, panel discussion, workshop, seminar, exhibit, or performance, should send their proposal to the organizers of the Conference no later than March 1, 2019. The programme committee will select the papers to be presented at the conference. The selections will be made public by April 1st.
