What is Calenda?

A multilingual calendar for the humanities and social sciences

Calenda is an online and open access calendar for the humanities and social sciences, available in several languages. Launched in 2000, it aims to offer research staff in the humanities and social sciences with a means to stay informed about academic events that are likely to be of interest to them. Thanks to its stable URLs, it offers an archive of academic life in the humanities and social sciences. All the published announcements are filed and remained accessible at the same address. Calenda depends on its community of users to suggest upcoming scientific events, via an online form.

Calenda is developed by the OpenEdition Center (USR 2004, formerly the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing, Cléo-UMS 3287).

It is supported by Aix-Marseille University, the CNRS, the EHESS, and Avignon University.
