***IAFOR's events on Arts and Humanities

IAFOR's arts and humanities programme is rich and diverse, with interdisciplinary conferences which engage with a broad range of research fields and seek to be venues for both academic and cultural exchange.

The academic programme for these conferences is developed by leading scholars in various fields, and our events are held in partnership with some of the world's leading institutions, including Birkbeck, University of London, Lehigh University, University of Indonesia, Virginia Tech, Waseda University, Monash University, and Glasgow University. As well as working with top universities, we also encourage and nurture intercultural and interdisciplinary research groups such as the DAMIN project, which brings together historians, geographers and economists to look at the development of commerce along the silk road.

Literature has always been given a high profile in our programme, and as well as welcoming presentations by prominent authors and poets, IAFOR also runs its prestigious Vladimir Devidé Haiku Award.

The organisation actively supports the arts and practicing of the arts by organising internationally recognised awards for both documentary photography (supported by World Press Photo, University of the Arts London, and Medill) and filmmaking (Medill).

Our arts conferences also showcase local talent during featured performances by musicians, dancers and artists. The events offer the opportunity for delegates to not only exchange the latest in research ideas, but also the chance to see performances, and take part in workshops and demonstrations.

***About IAFOR and its events

IAFOR welcomes thousands of academics to our conferences each year, which range in size from around 100 to in excess of 500 attendees. They do so because of the supportive and nurturing research environment, because of the unique networking opportunities, and because of the strength of the organization's platform.

Our conferences are meticulously planned and programmed under the direction of prominent academics to ensure that they offer programs of the highest level, and are also quite unique in the way in which they are supported by some of the world's leading academic institutions, including the University of London (UK), Virginia Tech (USA), Monash University (Australia), Barcelona University (Spain), Waseda University (Japan), the National Institute of Education (Singapore), and The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKSAR).

IAFOR's credibility has enabled it to become a genuine pioneer, and has grown to be the most respected and trusted organization encouraging international, intercultural and interdisciplinary study. The organization is a formative influence in providing new research avenues and visionary development solutions necessary in our rapidly emerging globalized world.

We welcome you to engage in this expanding global academic community of individuals and network of institutions, and look forward to seeing you at one of our future events, as we look forward to breaking new ground, together.
