THANK YOU UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA FOR HOSTING THE 2013 MWACS CONFERENCE!
THANK YOU UNIVERSITY OF WINDSOR FOR HOSTING THE 2010 MWACS CONFERENCE!


The University of North Dakota hosted the 2012 MWACS conference on Oct. 5 and 6. The program was excellent and included an eclectic mix of presentations addressing culture, policy, language, business, and environment-related topics. Everyone in the room was fascinating!

The conference was divided in two parts. On Friday, Oct. 5, speakers engaged in issues related to border security in the Great Plains and Prairies. On Saturday, Oct. 6, papers were presented by MWACS scholars. Discourse continued through dinner. The perfect conference day was topped off with a special treat Ė a night in the UND Presidentís box at the Stadium during the UND vs. Manitoba Game. You have not seen HOCKEY until you have seen a UNDís Fighting Sioux. Do people do the chicken dance at all hockey games? Or is that just UND?

Although we have had to scale back some of our original plans because of the cuts to the Understanding Canada program, we still intend to keep registration fees at $100 or less for employed academics and at $50 or less for students. We will also be providing at least one dinner/reception.

We want to share pictures that were taken during the conference. Please send any from your collection to csc@isp.msu.edu.

If you attended the conference, feel free to follow up with Kyle Conway (kyle.conway@und.edu) or Timothy Pasch (timothy.pasch@und.edutimothy.pasch@und.edu). Kudos to UND in Grand Forks! Your work was genuinely appreciated by all who attended MWACS 2012.

We look forward to reviewing proposals for MWACS 2014 during the ACSUS conference in Tampa.
