Each year, ARNOVA holds an annual conference which brings together more than 600 researchers, scholars, and practitioners from around the world to present and discuss papers related to issues in nonprofit studies, voluntary action, and philanthropy.
ARNOVA’s 2012 Conference will be held from November 15-17 in Indianapolis (IN) — The overarching theme this year is “Re-examining Philanthropy: Exploring Root Concepts for our Field(s).” This theme will be addressed in the plenary sessions, and is designed to stir a public conversation about the larger question: “What is philanthropy, and how do we encourage a broad and diverse approach to understanding philanthropy in theory and in practice?”
In addition, however, ARNOVA’s Conference will, as always, be a key opportunity to present and discuss the latest research on the wide range of topics relating to nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, voluntary action and civil society. The conference committee welcomes proposals addressing a broad variety of topics, in addition to the theme. We invite proposals from all disciplinary (and interdisciplinary) perspectives. We are very interested in international as well as national and local perspectives. Proposals may focus on the entire sector, or on any type of nonprofit or field of activity. We look forward to entertaining a wide variety of proposals, and invite you to submit yours. We particularly welcome younger scholars and members of under-represented groups to make their interests known to the conference organizers so we can include them in our community.
