2018 FIRE Faculty Conference: One week left to submit a proposal!

By April 23, 2018

There is just one week left to submit your proposals for the 2018 FIRE Faculty Conference!

The conference will take place from Oct. 11–13 in Chicago, at Loyola University Chicago’s downtown Water Tower campus. We look forward to once again hosting a symposium for faculty on issues related to academic freedom and freedom of speech in higher education.

FIRE welcomes paper and poster proposals from faculty and advanced graduate students on a wide variety of topics; please see the call for proposals for more details. We’ll be accepting proposals through Monday, April 30.

Those accepted to present papers at the conference will receive an honorarium of $3,000 in addition to reimbursement for travel and lodging. Those presenting posters will receive reimbursement for travel and lodging.

More information and a form for those interested in applying to attend the conference will be available later this spring. If you have any questions or would like more information, please email us at facultyconference@thefire.org.
