ACLS Annual Meeting




2018 ACLS Annual Meeting
April 26-28
Philadelphia, PA

The 2018 ACLS Annual Meeting will be held April 26-28 at the Sheraton Society Hill in Philadelphia, PA. The annual Charles Homer Haskins Prize Lecture will be delivered by Sally Falk Moore, legal anthropologist and professor emerita at Harvard University. Registration and meeting details will be posted shortly.

The annual meeting of the American Council of Learned Societies brings together delegates and administrative officers of our member societies, representatives of institutional associates and affiliates, and friends of ACLS from foundations, from government agencies, and from across the academic and public humanities. It offers a substantive program of broad interest to the scholarly community that ACLS represents. As constitutionally mandated, the Council meets to hear the Report of the Treasurer, to vote on the annual budget, and to take formal action on societies recommended for ACLS membership. The Conference of Executive Officers convenes directly after the annual meeting.

The 2017 annual meeting was held in Baltimore. Read more.
