2021 Conference

The 2021 KPA conference is now complete! We got off to a rocky start, but thanks to our hosting volunteers (Annie, Emily, David, Valerio, and Rebecca, and Craig) by the second session everything was running smoothly and we had a great conference!

If you attended the KPA conference, please give us a review below! We discussion the review results in the fall Executive Committee meeting, so please do fill it out. Survey results go directly into how the organization is run and planning next year’s conference.


The 2021 Kentucky Philological Review is now available for download on the KPR page.


Please give us feedback about the 2021 Conference!
