Societies and Professional Organizations

Most societies and professional organizations host conferences and meetings to facilitate discussion about the most recent scholarship in a subject area. Here are the top three ways of finding the right conference for you: 

  • Consult the society's website for conference, meeting, or event information
  • Follow or like your society on social media sites to receive announcements and updates
  • Subscribe to a discipline listserv for conference updates and calls for proposals
