25/10/11 .- http://thehumanities.com .

Centre Mont-Royal, Montreal, Canada
14-17 June 2012

We are pleased to announce the Call-for-Papers for the Tenth International
Conference on New Directions in the Humanities. The conference and its
companion journal provide vibrant, intellectually stimulating spaces for
scholars from all geographic and disciplinary areas to learn, converse,
and create. The aim is to generate new knowledge about the nature of the
humanities, building strongly on the past traditions of the humanities
while setting a renewed agenda for the future.

In addition to an impressive line-up of international plenary speakers,
the conference will also include paper presentations, roundtable
discussions, workshops, and colloquia submitted by practitioners, teachers
and researchers. Please refer to the Call-for-Papers for proposal
submission guidelines and descriptions of sessions. Presenters may also
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.

We are pleased to be holding the 2012 Humanities Conference in Montreal,
home to over a dozen colleges and universities. At the confluence of the
French and English traditions, Montreal has developed a unique and
distinguished cultural position as Canada's "Culture Capital". Old
Montreal is a historic area, containing many different attractions such as
the Old Port of Montreal, Place Jacques-Cartier, Montreal City Hall, the
Bonsecours Market, Place d'Armes, Pointe-?-Calli?re Museum, the Notre-Dame
de Montreal Basilica, and the Montreal Science Centre. All together, there
are 51 National Historic Sites of Canada in Montreal, more than any other
city in Canada. Landmarks remaining from the 1967 International and
Universal Exposition (Expo 67) include the geodesic dome US Pavilion (or
Montreal Biosphere), as well as Moshe Safdie's Habitat 67 apartment
complex. In 2006 Montreal was named a UNESCO City of Design, only one of
three design capitals of the world.

Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at this conference, we
also encourage you to present on the Humanities Conference YouTube
Playlist. Please select the Online Sessions link on the conference website
for further details. Additionally, please join our online conversation by
subscribing to our monthly email newsletter and subscribing to our
Facebook, RSS, or Twitter feeds at http://thehumanities.com .

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short
abstract) is 10 November 2011. Future deadlines will be announced on the
conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two
weeks of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online
proposal submission form, may be found on the conference website at

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to
join us in Montreal this coming June.
