The principal role of the Advisory Board is to drive the overall intellectual direction of the New Directions in the Humanities community and to consult on our foundational themes as they evolve along with the currents of the community. Board members are invited to attend the annual conference with a complimentary registration and provide important insights on conference development, including suggestions for speakers, venues, and special themes.

We also encourage board members to submit articles for publication consideration to The Humanities Collection of Journals as well as proposals or completed manuscripts to the Humanities book series.

The Humanities community is grateful for the continued service and support of these world-class scholars and practitioners.
