Johns Hopkins Macksey Symposium Applications Open

February 15th, 2021

Apply for Johns Hopkins University’s second annual Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium! The symposium was designed to offer students across the country the chance to gather together and disseminate their humanities research on a national scale. COVID forced the symposium to adapt to a virtual event, but that in turn was a great success, with 359 participants and more than 10,000 visits to the conference site to date. This year’s event will be virtual as well, held live on April 24th and 25th, 2021, and the application portal is now open. The deadline for abstract submissions is April 1st.

 

This symposium is open to undergraduate students from any two-year or four-year college or university who would like to present their original scholarship in the humanities. We hope to have 400 participants this year. In addition to the multiple panels of student papers and presentations (including original creative works), we will also have a wonderful keynote delivered by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anthony Doerr and multiple professional development panels featuring Johns Hopkins graduate students and faculty and editors from Johns Hopkins University Press. Students studying all areas of the humanities are welcome to attend. Attendees will also have the opportunity to work with our student editors to revise their presentation into a journal-length presentation for our journal of proceedings, the Macksey Journal.
