CFP 2017 National Humanities Conference

National Humanities Alliance

In addition to Hill-based advocacy, the National Humanities Alliance works to promote understanding of and support for the humanities on college campuses and in communities around the country.

The National Humanities Conference, which NHA co-hosts with the Federation of State Humanities Councils, plays a key role in these efforts. This conference brings together scholars and public humanities practitioners to explore how we can achieve broader public impact and increase support for the humanities.

This year’s conference will take place in Boston, November 2nd-5th. The Call for Proposals asks:

  • What role can and do the humanities play in re-envisioning public life?
  • How can collaborations within and beyond the humanities community magnify the public role of the humanities?

The deadline to submit proposals is March 15thPlease contact Beatrice Gurwitz ( with any questions.

We hope you will consider submitting a proposal and joining us in November!
