2021 National Conference
Cleveland, Ohio, October TBA
CCHA has made the decision to postpone the 2021 CCHA National Conference. We have arrived at this decision for two reasons. Firstly, we have no guarantee that large groups will be permitted to gather in November, which would clearly be detrimental to conference attendance. Secondly, and likely more importantly for our members, we do not know if travel will be permitted by your institutions, let alone that it would be reimbursed. Many institutions have limited and even banned faculty travel, and all of our institutions have taken a financial hit from the pandemic, and, as we all know, funding for travel is often the first thing to be eliminated from budgets. Instead of holding a tentative, lightly attended conference in 2021, we’d rather be able to hold a “regular” conference in 2022. We hope you can understand our decision.
For those who have submitted a proposal already, all submitted proposals will be kept on file and treated as submitted for the rescheduled conference; you will not need to resubmit your proposal.
Lastly, we hope that all of you are safe and well during this unprecedented time. While it is unfortunate that we are not able to convene in 2021, we hope that it will make the 2022 conference that much more hopeful and rewarding as we discuss Truth, Justice, and the Humanities Way.
