ACLS Annual Meeting




ACLS Celebrates Its Centennial!
2019 ACLS Annual Meeting, April 25-27, New York, NY

The 2019 ACLS Annual Meeting will be held April 25-27 at the New York Marriott Downtown, at which ACLS will celebrate its centennial. The annual Charles Homer Haskins Prize Lecture will be delivered by Lynn Hunt, Distinguished Research Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. Registration and meeting details will be posted in January.

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 2018 annual meeting was held in Philadelphia, PA. Read more.
