The Humanities Conference is held annually in different locations around the world. Over the past eleven years, the Humanities Conference has established a reputation as a focal point for new ideas and new practices in humanities research and teaching.
The conference will address a range of critically important themes in the various fields that make up the humanities today. Plenary speakers will include some of the world’s leading thinkers in the humanities, as well as numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by teachers and researchers.
We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types) addressing the Humanities through one of the following themes:
|Critical Cultural Studies||Communications and Linguistics Studies|
|Civic, Political, and Community Studies||Literary Humanities|
For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus.
Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered.
To learn more about preparing and submitting your conference proposal, including guidelines, deadlines, and "how-to" information, go to Submitting Your Work: Conference Presentations.

Delegates interested in submitting a proposal and presenting at the 2014 conference in either Spanish or Portuguese may submit their proposal through our partner knowledge community, Humanidades. Proposals submitted through this site will be considered for publication in the fully refereed Revista Internacional de Humanidades and will be presented in Spanish or Portuguese at the conference in a special Spanish/Portuguese-language themed session.
Abiding by the sentiment of the local proverb – "from Madrid to heaven" – the capital of Spain is known for its exquisite artistic, cultural, and culinary diversity. Home to over 160 museums, Madrid's three most celebrated art museums make up the "Golden Triangle of Art" – Museo del Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, and Museo Reina Sofía. Some of Madrid's most notable landmarks and cultural institutions include the Royal Palace of Madrid, the Royal Theatre and Opera House, the Buen Retiro Park, and the National Library. The city also embodies a bohemian half, with a vibrant creative culture and its famous tapas and nightlife.
Universidad CEU San Pablo is one of the most prestigious private universities in Europe. With over 75 years of academic excellence, it has more than 20 departments and 200 official courses. Located in one of the most important points of the city next to the area of Moncloa and Palacio de la Moncloa, where the Prime Minister lives, the university is only few metro stations from the heart of the city.
This thriving international environment is an ideal venue to bring to discussion our past and future knowledge in the humanities.
