Commitment to Bilingualism

As a bilingual association, CSSE is committed to showcasing the work of scholars in English, French, or the language(s) of our authors’ work and research. Multilingual research and presentations reflect the diversity of our community and our scholarship, and we hope that you take the opportunity to engage with colleagues in these spaces.

As you read this year’s program, please take special note of sessions tagged as Bilingual / Bilingue, which indicate that at least one paper in the session includes bilingual content. Bilingual content may include presentations, slides, or discussion questions in multiple languages, based on presenter comfort level and needs of each session.

As you prepare for this year’s conference, if you would like support from CSSE graduate students with slide translation, or would like support with bilingual discussions during your presentation (e.g., Q&A support), please email by March 31, 2021.
