This knowledge community is brought together by a shared commitment to the humanities and a concern for their future. The community interacts through an innovative, annual face-to-face conference, as well as year-round online relationships, a family of peer reviewed journals, and book series – exploring the affordances of the new digital media. Members of this knowledge community include academics, educators, researchers, and practitioners.
Our community members and first time attendees come from all corners of the globe. The Humanities Conference has established a reputation as a focal point for new ideas and new practices in humanities research and teaching. Those unable to attend the conference can opt for virtual participation, or simply submit a paper for peer review and possible publication in the journal.
The Humanities community enables members to publish through three media. First by participating in the International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities, community members can enter a world of journal publication unlike the traditional academic publishing forums – a result of the responsive, non-hierarchical and constructive nature of the peer review process. The International Journal of the Humanities provides a framework for double-blind peer review, enabling authors to publish into an academic journal of the highest standard.
The third major publishing medium is our social media platform, Scholar, constantly publishing short news updates from the community. You can also join this conversation at Facebook and Twitter or subscribe to our email Newsletter.
