“Dis/quieting Desires” is the organizing theme for Endnotes 2015, the annual graduate conference of the Department of English at the University of British Columbia. This conference, which takes place from 15-16 May 2015 at Green College, invites you to consider the methodological and thematic implications of “dis/quieting desires” in literary, language, and interdisciplinary contexts. Please see Conference Schedule for details.






The University of British Columbia is proud to be hosting a Dual Conference, comprising two international language and linguistics conferences: the 20th Biennial Dictionary Society of North America Meeting (DSNA-20) and the 9th Studies in the History of the English Language Conference (SHEL-9). We are anticipating fruitful synergies, while respecting the traditions of each conference. This combined conference will be hosted by the Department of English & Canadian English Laboratory and will be held on 5 to 7 June 2015 at UBC's Vancouver campus.
