CSSE 2023 To Be Mostly In-Person

The Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences has announced that Congress 2023 will take place in-person at York University’s Keele and Glendon campuses, with some virtual elements available on the Forj platform that was used for Congress 2021 and 2022. While CSSE now has two years of experience hosting online-only gatherings, we have no experience hosting a hybrid conference at CSSE’s scale, and a fully (or significantly) hybrid gathering involves significant challenges.

Therefore, while we anticipate that CSSE 2023 will include some virtual elements, we expect that CSSE 2023 will be predominantly in-person. If you have insights or questions, please reach out to Michael Holden, the CSSE Conference Manager, at, or contact your Association President. We look forward to welcoming you to York University and this year’s conference!
