Johns Hopkins Macksey Symposium Applications Open

The Johns Hopkins University's Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium was designed to offer students across the country the chance to gather together and disseminate their humanities and interdisciplinary research on a national scale. The third annual Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium will be held virtually on April 8-10, 2022.  

The 2022 Macksey Symposium will feature the following:

  • A robust national student audience: undergraduate students from any two or four-year college or university who would like to present their original humanities and/or interdisciplinary scholarship.
  • Multiple panels of student papers and original creative works.
  • A keynote delivered by the contemporary poet Elisabet Velasquez, who recently released When We Make It and whose poetry has been featured in TIDALNBCLatina Magazine, and more. Elisabet Velasquez will share in a fireside chat with students about creative inspiration and her research process.
  • Multiple professional development panels featuring Johns Hopkins graduate students and faculty as well as JHU Press editors.

Following the conference, student participants will also have the opportunity to work with our peer editors to revise their presentation into a journal-length publication for our journal of proceedings, the Macksey Journal. Registration will be $175; late registration will be $205.  

Students interested in applying should visit the conference website for full details.

The deadline to submit an application is February 15, 2022 at 5:00pm EST.
