The Global Economic Crisis and Canada: Perception Versus Reality
– 2013 issue of Alternate Routes journal
– Conference on March 23rd, 2012 at Ryerson University in Toronto

Alternate Routes is seeking contributions that go beyond the rhetoric of recession versus recovery as measured by narrowly economistic factors. We are seeking papers that chart the full affects of the global economic crisis and its implications for Canada. In what ways has international instability affected Canada? To what extent are such features structurally-induced, the product of contemporary circumstances, the result of specific policies of particular administrations, or some combination of other factors? What are the characteristics, politics, and forms of resistance to Canadian versions of austerity? What new challenges and opportunities have been created? How should progressives respond?

Proposals for conference are due: January 15, 2012

Article submissions due: April 31st, 2012
