The Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium provides hundreds of students across all fields of the humanities the opportunity to share their work in the professional presentation style most common to their fields. 2023 will be our fourth year hosting the symposium, and we have had over 1,000 student presenters.

The 2023 Macksey Symposium will be hosted in person on the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus on March 24-25, 2023 for registered presenters and guests.

All participants have had the opportunity to submit their work to a journal of conference proceedings. Their publications have been viewed over 15,000 times so far. Our peer-reviewed journal of proceedings, the Macksey Journal, is now online and spans from 2020 to present.
