The Arab Canadian Studies Research Group (ACANS) is proud to announce its First Annual Symposium in Arab Canadian Studies to be held at the University of Ottawa on February 15 and 16, 2013. The Symposium aims to illuminate a regretful blind spot in academic research by adequately reflecting the rich and diverse contributions of Arab Canadians in various spheres of cultural, intellectual, social and political production.

The event features the honorable keynote speakers Dr. Mamdouh Shoukri (President of York University) and Dr. Mona Nemer (Vice President Research, University of Ottawa), as well as the distinguished guest speakers the Egyptian Canadian musician George Sawa, the Lebanese Canadian writer and IMPAC literary prize winner Rawi Hage and the well-established Lebanese Canadian artist Jaber Lutfi.
