Annual Meetings

The 2020 ACLS Annual meeting will take place April 30-May 2 in Baltimore, MD at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel, 700 Aliceanna Street, Baltimore, MD.  Linda K. Kerber, May Brodbeck Professor in the Liberal Arts and Professor of History Emerita, Lecturer in Law at the University of Iowa, will deliver the Haskins Prize Lecture on Friday evening, May 1. Registration and meeting details will be posted in late 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. A high point of the meeting is the Charles Homer Haskins Prize Lecture, which recognizes a life of scholarly achievement and distinctive importance. The Conference of Executive Officers convenes directly after the annual meeting.
