The symposium offers students across the country the chance to gather together and disseminate their humanities and interdisciplinary research on a national scale. COVID forced us to adapt to a virtual event, but that in turn was a great success with close to 1,000 participants and more than 25,000 visits to the conference site to date. This year’s event will be virtual as well, held live April 8th-10th, 2022, and our application portal is now open. The submission deadline is February 15, 2022.
The Macksey Symposium is designed to provide a development opportunity for students that looks toward their future pursuit of the humanities. The 2022 symposium will feature the following:
Student feedback about Macksey has been overwhelming positive, with 93% of students saying that they were very or highly likely to recommend Macksey to a friend or colleague and over 90% rating their experience at the conference as satisfied or highly satisfied.
Registration will be $175; late registration will be $205. You can learn more at our conference site: https://krieger.jhu.edu/macksey-symposium/. We would also be glad to answer any questions you might have. We are also holding virtual drop-in hours for students to ask questions about the symposium, the application, and creating an abstract with times listed on the flyer linked below.
