2022 National Humanities Conference | Energy of Motion: Experiencing Change in Kinetic California

2022 National Humanities Conference | Energy of Motion: Experiencing Change in Kinetic California

Deadline to Apply: April 1, 2022

Proposals for the National Humanities Conference are due on April 1st. 

This year’s theme is “Energy of Motion: Experiencing Change in Kinetic California.” After many months of being in stasis because of the global pandemic, we are all craving movement, travel, activity—and Los Angeles is the perfect place to experience this, to accelerate our connections and create greater humanities energy together. The conference is an opportunity to envision how the humanities contribute to understanding movement and the energy that results, as well as how the humanities themselves generate kinetic energy that transforms individual and collective lives. 

We are pleased to collaborate with the Federation of State Humanities Councils and California Humanities to bring together representatives from colleges, universities, state humanities councils, cultural institutions, and other community-based organizations in Los Angeles this November to explore the public humanities!
