NHA Primary Icon Logo

We are pleased to announce that the Call for Proposals for the 2021 National Humanities Conference is now available! The conference will be held November 11-14 in Detroit, Michigan.*

Co-hosted by the National Humanities Alliance and the Federation of State Humanities Councils, the National Humanities Conference brings together representatives from colleges, universities, state humanities councils, cultural institutions, and other community-based organizations to explore approaches to deepening the public’s engagement with the humanities. The Detroit conference will be hosted in collaboration with Michigan Humanities.

Meeting in Detroit offers an occasion for thinking about borders and how the humanities can help us understand how they are constructed, the challenges they pose, and ways they can be crossed.

Learn more about the Call for Proposals on our event webpage.

We encourage you to submit proposals and recruit others to do the same! Proposals are due April 9, 2021. Please contact with any questions or for support in building sessions.


*We are paying close attention to the CDC and WHO recommendations regarding COVID-19 and will adjust as necessary to ensure the health and well-being of attendees. In addition to the in-person event, we are currently planning a small number of virtual sessions in conjunction with the conference and opportunities to connect from afar. As you review the Call for Proposals, please note that there will be an opportunity to designate on the submission form that you are only interested in presenting virtually.
