Welcome to NAVSA 2018. We look forward to seeing you in St. Petersburg, Florida.

NAVSA 2018 will be held October 11-14, 2018 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel.

We are excited to announce our three plenaries: Erika Rappaport, Belinda Edmondson, and Sally Shuttleworth. These keynotes anchor three foci of the conference, and we hope there will be lively conversations on Caribbean Studies, Global Victorians, and Science/Medicine, even as the conference overall ranges more widely.



The first round of acceptances was distributed on April 12. We are working to finalize the program structure and will be in touch about a second round of acceptances as we have a clearer sense of the event schedule.

We are in the process of scheduling a Professionalization Workshop for graduate students and early career scholars. Events for this will run before the conference begins on Thursday, October 11 and after it concludes on Sunday, October 14. Programming specifics are forthcoming.

We are also constructing a seminar schedule and will solicit additional applications for participation as planning develops.


Additional conference details will be added to this website as they are confirmed.
