Coming Soon - March 4-6, 2021: HERA Virtual Conference
"Cultural Divides: Bridging Gaps and Making Connections"
Call for Papers
The Humanities encompasses a vast story comprised of many stories. From the classics through the present day, from ancient times to the contemporary, the humanities as a discipline speaks through time, as a voice for many cultures, addressing many peoples. HERA invites research, papers, panels, and presentations embracing inclusivity in all aspects of the human conditions––including, but not limited to, race, class, gender, sexuality, age, veteran status, ability, power, ecology, sustainability. We encourage a wide and extensive representation of disciplines and interdisciplinary projects. Every field in the humanities, liberal & creative arts, and social sciences is appropriate. Our goal is to foster the sharing and expressing of the humanities as an urgently important human enterprise––helping to clarify the crucial immediacy of the humanities and why they should be encouraged, supported, and sustained.
Submissions are encouraged from educators at all levels as well as all those with an interest in the arts and humanities. Proposals for papers, panels, or workshops (150-200 words) must be submitted through the conference submission portal on HERA’s new website.
Deadline for Submissions: January 25, 2021
