Call for papers: Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium brings together undergraduate students from across the country to present their humanities and interdisciplinary research to a national audience. This year's symposium will be held March 21-23, 2024, on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. Submissions (in the form of a title and abstract) are due by Dec. 8.
