Call for 2024 Conference Session Proposals Now Open Through Jan 31!

Session submissions for the 2024 HxA Conference are now open! The theme of our 2024 Conference is Principles in Action. In a historic moment when the function and future of higher education is up for debate like never before:

  • What are the principles, practices, and strategies that can make a concrete difference in promoting open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement?

  • How can our institutions, our teaching, and our research better respond to challenges from politicization, groupthink, polarization, and more–as experts, advocates, and exemplars?

  • What are the dangers, blind spots, and unintended consequences of an effort like this?

Concurrent sessions will include research presentations led by HxA members and other experts. This year’s sessions will be fewer but longer (80 minutes) as compared to 2022, allowing a larger audience to go deeper on a given topic. A new format, the Heterodox Conversation, will showcase two experts with differing views in conversation with each other and the audience. Student research will also be exclusively showcased in a poster session.

Submissions are due by Wednesday, January 31 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

The full CFP, including information about session formats, submission evaluation, and acceptance can be found here.
