Call for Papers
We are pleased to share with you the Call for Papers for the Nineteenth International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities, Complutense University of Madrid, Madrid, Spain, 30 June – 2 July 2021.
The New Directions in the Humanities Research Network is brought together by a common interest in established traditions in the humanities while at the same time developing innovative practices and setting a renewed agenda for their future. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.
The Nineteenth International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities features research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:
2021 Special Focus—Critical Thinking, Soft Skills, and Technology
2021 Plenary Speakers
The Nineteenth International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities will feature plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
Reimagining the Scholarly Conference
Our mission is to provide a safe, sustainable, and accessible way for us to come together and interact as a Research Network. We are taking on these challenges by offering a blended conference experience, with session types explicitly designed to make the most of both online and place-based social knowledge processes. We are trying to move away from the either/or of place-based or online conferences. And at the same time be ready for the possibility of place based cancelation due to COVID-19. This way we build for our Research Network Members resilient spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.
The important message — the conference will happen!
You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change.
And all content will be displayed online.
This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.
