About AGIC

Since 1995, the Annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Conference (AGIC), hosted and organized by graduate students in the Department of Religions and Cultures at Concordia University, has aimed to foster a dynamic and engaging platform for emerging scholars both locally and across North America.

As a collaborative space designed to generate and illuminate unanticipated points of contact across a wide spectrum of academic fields, AGIC challenges participants to reconsider methodological and theoretical developments from a cross-disciplinary perspective, while simultaneously facilitating opportunities for Concordia students to comprehensively develop their CVs and professional networks.

While AGIC has historically taken on a classic single-day style of student panels and invited keynote lectures, recent iterations have sought to challenge the rigidity of this conference structure by experimenting with innovative pedagogical avenues in tandem with emergent and urgent sociopolitical concerns.
