We announce the Call for Papers for the Sixteenth International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities, held 5–7 July 2018 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA.
First held at the University of the Aegean on the island of Rhodes in Greece in 2003, the conference has moved its location each year to different countries and continents, each offering its own perspectives on the human condition and the current state of studies of the human. This research network is brought together by a shared commitment to the humanities and a concern for their future.
We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, colloquia, innovation showcases, virtual posters, or virtual lightning talks. The conference features research addressing the annual themes and the 2018 Special Focus: “Reconsidering Freedom.”

Submit your proposal by 20 November 2017.
We welcome the submission of proposals at any time of the year. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission.
If you are unable to attend the conference in person, you may present in a virtual poster session or a virtual lightning talk. Virtual Sessions enable participants to present work to a body of peers and to engage with colleagues from afar.
As virtual participants, presenters are scheduled in the formal program, have access to select conference content, can submit an article for peer review and possible publication, may upload an online presentation, and can enjoy annual membership to the Research Network and subscriber access to the New Directions in the Humanities Journal Collection.
