Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the Advisory Board, we would like to inform you of the:

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), USA
29 June - 2 July 2010

We are very pleased to be holding this year's conference in Los Angeles, California. Los Angeles is one of the most diverse and dynamic cities in the United States, attracting immigrants and visitors from around the world to its wide range of attractions, activities and professional opportunities. Although Los Angeles is perhaps most well recognized as the center of U.S. movie and television production, its cultural role exceeds that of its most famous industry. Its music, literary and visual and performing arts communities, for instance, reflect the diverse perspectives of Angelinos and are internationally influential. The Los Angeles area is home to some of the best galleries and museums in the country and to distinguished centers for humanities research, such as the Getty Center, the Huntington Library and the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library. The city is also a center of higher education, boasting many of the finest colleges and universities in the United States, i!
 ncluding the host of this year's International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

The Humanities Conference provides a space for dialogue and for the publication of new knowledge that builds 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 Conference YouTube Channel. Please select the Online Sessions link on the Conference website for further details.

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 13 August 2009.  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, are to be found at the Conference website -

We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join us in Los Angeles in summer 2010.

Yours Sincerely,

Tom Nairn
