On behalf of the Advisory Board, we would like to inform you of the:
NINTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NEW DIRECTIONS IN THE HUMANITIES
Universidad de Granada, Granada, Spain
8-11 June 2011
We are pleased to be holding the 2011 conference in Granada, Spain at the
Universidad de Granada. Known throughout Spain and Europe for its
scholarship over many centuries, the Universidad de Granada also brings
great diversity to the city and contributes to Granada's thriving student
population, today totaling over 80,000 students. The University was founded
during the rule Sultan Yusuf I, and is also contemporaneous with the 14th
Century Alhambra which overlooks the city and the university.
The Humanities Conference and its companion journal provide spaces for
dialogue and for the generation of new knowledge about the nature of the
humanities, building strongly on the past traditions of the humanities
whilst setting a renewed agenda for their future.
In addition to an impressive line-up of international plenary speakers, the
conference will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium
presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. We would
particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference
Call-for-Papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for
publication in the fully refereed International Journal of the Humanities.
If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations
are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and
possible publication in this fully refereed academic journal.
Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at this conference, we also
encourage you to present on the Humanities Conference YouTube Channel.
Please select the Online Sessions link on the conference website for further

conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks
