ACS 2016 Recap

The 2016 Atlantic Canada Studies Conference was held this past weekend at Mount Allison University. The organizing committee did a fantastic job of ensuring that conference attendees had a great time while in Sackville. This year’s version of the ACS Conference was a little different than those held in years past; in addition to the usual number of excellent papers delivered by established and emerging scholars, this year’s conference also featured a number of tribute sessions devoted to such scholars as Esther Clark Wright, Ernest R. Forbes, and Gail G. Campbell. It is our hope to bring some of these tribute pieces to the Acadiensis blog’s readership in the next few weeks. In the meantime, please enjoy Gail Campbell’s piece “‘Are we going to do the most important things?’ Senator Muriel McQueen Fergusson, Feminist Identities, and the Royal Commission on the Status of Women,” from the Summer 2009 issue of Acadiensis, and join us in congratulating Gail on her pending appointment as Professor Emerita in UNB’s Department of History!
