Propose a Conference

Guidelines for Proposing Conferences

The Huntington Research Department hosts six two-day academic conferences every year, and the Director of Research welcomes the submission of proposals from scholars, based either in the United States or elsewhere, who are interested in convening conferences which either reflect or build upon the strength of the collections in the institution. The conferences are funded and hosted by The Huntington, but are the responsibility of the conveners to develop and explain the intellectual rationale, for example, why is the time right for a conference on this theme, and why is The Huntington the right venue.

Update: The conference schedule is fully booked through 2020-21. Guidelines and application information for 2021-22 will be available fall 2019.
