ALISE 2022 Annual Conference
October 24-26, 2022 | Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 



Call for Proposals is Now Closed

We would like to reiterate that our ALISE 2022 conference theme “Go Back and Get it: From One Narrative to Many” signifies our intention to provide a fearless space to examine how the history of LIS education, and academia as whole, impacts the profession in the present. It is designed to encourage participants to ask difficult questions and to provide a platform for transformative conversations.

Amplifying multiple voices from the past and present demands engagement with a wide range of topics, pedagogies, and research methodologies. Such wide ranging dialogue can only occur through proposals from the entire spectrum of LIS and related fields. We welcome responses to the conference theme via proposal submission to ensure we have meaningful dialog at the conference.
