Registration for Virtual Vancouver NAVSA 2022

NAVSA 2021-22, “Unsettling Victorians” is going virtual.


Originally planned to take place at the Westin Bayshore Hotel in downtown Vancouver, the conference will now be hosted online, March 3rd-6th, 2022. This was an excruciating decision, but necessary under the circumstances of the recent Covid-19 surge fuelled by the highly transmissible Omicron variant. We will provide more information about the format of the conference as it becomes available.

We warmly thank you for your understanding and patience during the long journey of this conference over these difficult past two years. We look forward to welcoming you to an exciting and generative virtual conference in March.

Note: All conference attendees must be current (2022) members of NAVSA. Special membership rates are available for graduate students, adjunct faculty, and independent scholars. Join or renew your membership here.
