Macksey Symposium Applications Due

December 8 All day

We invite submissions for the fifth annual Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium, to be held at Johns Hopkins University from March 21-23, 2024. The Macksey Symposium brings together students from across the country to present their humanities and interdisciplinary research. All participants have the opportunity to submit their work to our peer-reviewed journal of conference proceedings, the Macksey Journal.

We welcome applications from undergraduates currently enrolled at any two- or four-year college or university. To apply, submit an abstract of your presentation to the application portal.

Conference presentations will be a maximum of ten minutes long and may consist of reading a paper (approximately 1,200-1,500 words) or presenting a PowerPoint slideshow. We are excited to showcase undergraduate students’ research across the humanities and in a variety of formats. For more information on how to apply, visit the Apply page of our symposium website.

Notifications of acceptance to the symposium will be made in early January, 2024. Details about registration, travel and accommodations, the keynote speaker, and the conference schedule can be found on the Attendance Information page of our symposium website.
