The Humanities Education and Research Association (HERA) invites submissions for its virtual conference on March 3-5, 2022. Submissions are due by January 25, 2022.
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, and sustainability.
Organizers encourage a wide and extensive representation of disciplines and interdisciplinary projects. Every field in the humanities, liberal & creative arts, and social sciences is appropriate. Their 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.
A prize of $500 will be awarded to the best undergraduate conference paper that addresses race, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality. Creative presentations, readings, and exhibitions are also welcomed. Undergraduate students applying for the prize, must indicate this on their submission abstract.
A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the best undergraduate conference paper (or divided among a panel of papers), sponsored by an attending professor (with a $500 prize awarded to the professor). See HERA’s website for more details.
Creative presentations, readings, and exhibitions are also welcomed.
Undergraduate students may apply for only one of the two undergraduate prizes
