Whether you’re a tenure-track faculty member or K-12 teacher, a community organizer or a graduate student, membership in NECLAS offers you the opportunity to network and dialogue with people who share some of your concerns and interests, and get constructive feedback on your scholarship and/or community-based work.
Benefits include admission to our annual online programming, entrance to our in-person events throughout the year, including at regional and major conferences, access to our newsletter, and eligibility for submission to our book and article annual prizes.
Membership in groups like NECLAS allows academics to break out of our narrow disciplinary ruts and explore different perspectives within the field of study.
