Academic Conferences

academic conferences

IHS attends over 20 conferences a year, representing five academic disciplines.

Conferences are a great place to catch up with IHS staff or participate in an IHS event. These often include receptions, academic research seminars, career development workshops, mock interviews, and more.

IHS also offers financial support to help you get to conferences through our Hayek Fund for Scholars, which can help cover the cost of travel or other career-related expenses.

Panel Support

IHS offers support to scholars organizing Conference Panels. In addition to logistical support, IHS may cover travel costs and registration fees.

As part of its Discourse Initiative, IHS is particularly interested in research and programs in the following general categories: Liberalism and Its Critics, Key Challenges within a Free Society, Cultural Challenges within Liberal Society, Contentious Topics within the Liberal Tradition, and Liberalism in Times of Crisis. Learn more about the Discourse Initiative here.

IHS welcomes applications and proposals on these or other related topics from scholars in all disciplines.
