In keeping with HERA's mission of promoting the study of the humanities across a wide range of disciplines, we invite presentations exploring any form of artistic representation---literature, the visual arts, music, theatre, opera, dance, film, photography, architecture et al---from any world culture, using an interdisciplinary "crossroads" approach to enrich and deepen our understanding of these cultural artifacts and the societies that produced them. Presentations on interdisciplinary approaches to teaching the humanities are also welcome. Proposals for papers, panels, or workshops must be submitted through the conference web portal on the HERA website at Questions may be directed to the conference organizers, Francesca Lawson ( or Michael Call (
