ALECC 2024: Migrations

The 2024 Association for Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada (ALECC) biennial conference takes migrations as its theme as it seeks new ways of comprehending and responding to the complexity of migration in the past, present, and future. Migrations, in its plural register, is understood expansively, recognizing its many forms and the modes of unevenly distributed power that shape migrant experiences, whether human or otherwise. We understand migration not only as a consistent theme in planetary human and more-than-human history, but also as a phenomenon that is historically interconnected and shaped.
