The Johns Hopkins University’s first annual Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium is now open for submissions!
This will be a new annual two-day event at Johns Hopkins main campus in Baltimore, Maryland and it will offer students across the country the chance to disseminate their humanities research on a national scale. The event will be this spring, April 3rd and 4th, 2020 and the application portal is now open.
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. The university hopes to have 400 participants this year and will also be offering a select number of travel grants to help students afford participation. In addition to the multiple panels of student papers and presentations (including original creative works), they will also have a wonderful keynote delivered by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Anthony Doerr and multiple professional development panels featuring graduate students and faculty in Johns Hopkins’ humanities departments and centers. Students studying all areas of the humanities are welcome to attend.
Those interested can learn more at the conference site.

The annual Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium (CAURS) will take place at DePaul on Sunday, April 15th, in the Student Center. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your work.
This annual research Symposium is a partnership between several area universities, primarily DePaul, Northwestern, Loyola, ITT, Roosevelt, and the University of Chicago. The Symposium is for undergraduates primarily in the sciences, social sciences and humanities, but any undergrad may present research they have done here or through an external program.
Have you written a paper you’re especially excited about? Whether it’s a research paper or creative writing, be sure to submit it to the University of St. Francis’ 25th annual English Language and Literatures Conference no later than September 15 (that’s this Thursday!).
The ELL Conference is an opportunity for students across the country to present papers, field questions, and further hone their argumentative thinking skills in a challenging but supportive environment. A special bonus for participating students is that a conference presentation looks especially good on resumes and graduate school applications.
