Humanities Education and Research Association [HERA]
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

The HERA conference peer review program committee invites proposals for presentations at the 2019 conference. The program committee’s theme is designed to incorporate any and all possible connotations. Our understanding of the tensions and implications of the “highbrow-lowbrow” continuum have existed for as long as the humanities.

Call for creative proposals for NeMLA 2018 in Washington D.C. March 21-24, 2019.

This creative session asks participants to write through a Portuguese and/or Canadian perspective in regards to borders, postcolonialism, saudade or 'the North'. The work focuses on understandings of these themes; the idea is to bring together a blend a contemporary national and/or personal views. The participant should write on either Portugal or Canada; there can be a Luso-Canadian view but this is not required for all entries. The goal is to understand and question nationhood through geography (landscapes), politics (economy), and culture (the self and the community).
