Johns Hopkins' Macksey Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

Present at Johns Hopkins University’s second annual Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium. Designed to offer students from across the country a chance to gather together and disseminate their humanities research on a national scale, this year's virtual event will be held live April 24-25, 2021.

This symposium is open to undergraduate students from any two-year or four-year college or university who would like to present their original scholarship in the humanities. In addition to multiple panels of student papers and presentations (including original creative works), there will also be a wonderful keynote delivered by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anthony Doerr and multiple professional development panels featuring Johns Hopkins graduate students and faculty and editors from Johns Hopkins University Press.

Students studying all areas of the humanities are welcome to attend. Attendees will also have the opportunity to work with our student editors to revise their presentation into a journal-length presentation for our journal of proceedings, the Macksey Journal.

The deadline for abstract submission is April 1. To learn more, visit the conference website
