CFP: Virtual National Humanities Conference

We are looking forward to seeing colleagues from near and far at the 2020 Virtual National Humanities Conference on Friday, November 6; Tuesday, November 10; Thursday, November 12; and Friday, November 13.

As we work to finalize the schedule (more details coming soon!), we are pleased to announce two opportunities to participate in the conference:

  1. Propose a Late-Breaking Session: A lot can change in a few months, especially in 2020. Do you have an idea for a session that addresses the challenges and opportunities presented since the initial call for proposals closed in February? Propose a late-breaking session here.
  2. Propose a facilitated conversation topic on humanities work in this unprecedented year, including topics you’d like to discuss right after the 2020 election. These facilitated conversations will take place from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm EST on Friday, November 6. Please email Kassie Wahlstrom ( with your topic of choice.

We will notify you about whether your late-breaking session or facilitated conversation topic has been accepted by October 1st.

We look forward to sharing a complete schedule along with registration information in the coming weeks. For now, please take a look at our schedule at a glance to help you plan for the conference days.

Please note: All times are listed in ET. Programming will take place in the afternoon and evening to accommodate as many U.S. time zones as possible.

More information coming soon!
