Session Formats

Restorying Canada includes panel discussions, individual papers, and wildcard sessions.

Panel Discussions

Panels consist of three papers, all lasting either 15 minutes or 20 minutes, with time for discussion following.

  • Presenters should represent a variety of institutions and fields.
  • Panels consisting of 15-minute papers must include two additional participants, where one serves as a chair and the other serves as a respondent.
  • Panels consisting of 20-minute papers must include one additional participant who serves as both a chair and a respondent.
  • All panels include a question-and-answer period of minimum 30 minutes.

Panel discussion guidelines

  • Presenters should represent a variety of institutions and fields whenever possible (i.e. institutional affiliations; including independent scholars, archivists, performers, activists).
  • It is encouraged that presenters represent diverse stages of professional experience (i.e. junior and senior scholars).
  • Panels consisting of graduate students are encouraged to invite at least one senior scholar to join their panel as presenter, chair, or respondent.

Individual Papers

Individual papers are submitted independently, and not as part of a pre-formed traditional panel. The review committee will assign individual papers to themed panels.

Wildcard Sessions

A wildcard session consists of other presentation formats, including roundtables, visual displays, workshops, or artist/scholar collaborations. Individuals or teams can submit proposals for wildcard sessions. Since each session will be unique, proposals must be careful to clarify the format and links to the conference themes.
