Upcoming Conference:  Undergraduate Network for Research in the Humanities

This is a reminder that the deadline to apply for UNRH’s InterHumanities conference is now about one month away. Applications are due by November 12th, so be sure to alert your students! As a reminder, projects for applications do not have to be completed; as long as the project is well underway and/or will be finished in time for the conference, students may submit partially completed projects. Furthermore, all applicants will need to learn about and decide upon a workshop to attend. Read about the workshops at http://unrh.org/conference/workshops/

We at UNRH are also excited to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. Jacob Heil. To learn more about Jacob, visit http://unrh.org/conference/keynote-speaker/.

We look forward to hearing from your students.
