Our Academic Research Symposia offer scholars a unique opportunity to collaborate with experts through moderated panel discussions and breakout sessions, and to discuss and shape their research on topics where the liberal perspective may be underrepresented. These programs go beyond the typical conference experience. Scholars will collaborate in real-time and walk away with potential research questions in their fields.
Are You Looking To Share Your Research Ideas With Experts In Those Fields?
Our seminars are hosted online and in-person and are often attached to academic conferences, spanning a wide range of disciplines, and are held all over the United States. Not only do our seminars provide a platform for collaboration and networking, but we also provide hotel and travel reimbursement for in-person programs that can offset the costs of attending your favorite academic conference.
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.
We are also interested in topics addressing issues around Social Media, Big Tech, and Free Speech, Tensions Between National Security and Freedom, the Future of Liberalism, Social Justice Solutions and the Tension Between Freedom and Government, and Structural Problems within Higher Education.
IHS welcomes applications and proposals on these or other related topics from scholars in all disciplines.
