2023 Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium
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. Attendees also participate in professionalization and recruitment events during the three-day symposium. It's the first conference of its kind: there has been no other national platform for undergraduates in the humanities to share their work. Presentations must be on topics in the Humanities, such as History, Art History, Media Studies, Language(s), Music, Religion, Philosophy, Culture, and Literature.
The 2023 Symposium will be held in-person on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood Campus on March 24-25, 2023. We welcome applications from undergraduates currently enrolled at any two- or four-year college, university, or community college. Conference presentations will be a maximum of ten minutes long and can consist of reading a paper (approximately 1,200-1,500 words) or presenting a PowerPoint slideshow.
To apply, you will need a title and brief abstract for your presentation (150-250 words). For application tips, see our How to Apply page.
