A Global Symposium on Humanities in the 21st Century

24th to 25th March 2013

Oxford, United Kingdom

The Organising Chairs welcome the submission of proposals for research papers, position papers that engage with a specific issue and offer solutions, workshops and other interactive presentations, performances/installations and pre-constituted panels. We also welcome non-presenting delegates who wish to attend as workshop participants.

Submissions may deal with any aspect of the value of the Humanities, which may include:

Defenses/critiques of the value of the Humanities
Assessments of the relationship between humanist values and practical application
Multi-cultural/cross-cultural approaches to the Humanities
Benefits and application of knowledge and training in the Humanities
Humanities research as a path to understanding: its advantages and challenges
'Survival stories': Case studies of how Humanities programmes and faculties have weathered inhospitable conditions
How digital humanities serve both 'digital' and 'humanities' interests
Integrating the Humanities into educational experiences
Innovation in Humanities research, teaching and learning

In light of the project's emphasis on open engagement and discussion, there is an expectation that all delegates attend all sessions and participate fully. A discussion of the publishing outcomes will take place during the Development Meeting at the end of the event.

Proposals of 300 words or less should be emailed jointly to the Organising Chairs with "hum1 Proposal" as the subject. The deadline for submission is 20 February 2013, though we may be able to accept proposals after that deadline subject to space available.

Please include a) name of author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of presentation (e) body of proposal. We acknowledge receipt of all proposals submitted. If you do not receive a reply from us in a week you should resend.

Non-presenting Delegates

Delegates who prefer to participate in the conversations and workshops rather than deliver a presentation may attend on a first come, first served basis subject to space available at the venue. We regret that it may not be possible to admit everyone. To book, send an email to with "hum1 Booking Request" as the subject. Please include your name, affiliation and
email address.


Participants may choose from two registration options:

Non-Residential: £255 covers registration, morning/afternoon tea, lunches and wine reception
Residential: £300 covers registration, morning/afternoon tea, lunches, wine reception and 2 nights of accommodation at the college

We regret that as a not-for-profit network, Inter-Disciplinary.Net is not in a position to assist with conference travel or subsistence.
