University of California, Los Angeles, USA (29 June – 2 July 2010)

Proposal deadline:  June 10, 2010

The Humanities Conference provides a space for dialogue and for the publication of new knowledge that builds on the past traditions of the humanities whilst setting a renewed agenda for their future.

This year’s conference will feature the following plenary speakers:

* Joyce Appleby, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

* Douglas Kellner, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

* Jodie Parys, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Whitewater, USA

* David G. Stork, Stanford University, Stanford, USA

In addition to plenary presentations, the Humanities Conference includes parallel presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. We invite you to respond to the conference Call-for-Papers. Presenters submit their written papers for publication in the refereed ‘International Journal of the Humanities’. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available, which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in the journal.

Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at this conference, we also encourage you to present on the conference YouTube Channel. Please select the Online Sessions link on the conference website for further details.

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 10 June 2010. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal submission form, are to be found at the conference website –

We also invite you to subscribe to our free, monthly email newsletter, and to our Facebook, RSS or Twitter feeds at

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in Los Angeles in June.

Yours Sincerely,
