The Conference at the End of the World: An Online Event

Call for papers

July 14 2020

This conference, organised by Alt-Ac UK, is intended to bring together scholars across the humanities and social sciences through an online medium. The global COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in many personal losses and universal upheaval. This has included significant challenges for the academic community, such as the cancellation of almost all events, workshops, and conferences in the forthcoming months.

The Conference at the End of the World is intended as an opportunity to present the papers originally intended for cancelled events. Conducted entirely online, this event will allow for a worldwide gathering of scholars which overcomes the challenges of social distancing and environmental impacts of international conferences. To accommodate the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, abstracts are welcome on any and all subjects within the domain of the humanities and social sciences.

Attendance is free for non-established scholars, with optional donations available to cover the arrangement costs of early career scholars. Salaried academics will be asked to donate £20.

Abstract deadline: May 25

Acknowledgement of acceptance: No later than June 1
