After a one-year hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a successful return in 2021, we’re pleased to announce that the 2022 FIRE Faculty Network Conference will be heading to Los Angeles this fall — our conference’s first trip to the west coast! 

The conference will take place from Oct. 20–22 at the University of Southern California, with main sessions taking place Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21 and 22. 

FIRE’s Faculty Network Conference centers on presentations submitted for consideration through a call for proposals. As in past years, we seek papers and discussions on topics relevant to today’s discussions and debates on free expression and academic freedom in American higher education.
