Click here for the full story of how the Humanity Participants' Conferences & Book Series came to be.

The Humanity conferences were inspired by Russell Genet's latest book, Humanity: The Chimpanzees Who Would Be Ants and are called "participantsí conferences" because the usual distinctions between organizers and attendees, between speakers and audience are greatly diminished. Participants assist in planning the conference sessions in advance and managing the conferences as they unfold. Attendees donít just listen, they chair sessions, participate in panels, help with refreshments, and interact throughout. College and graduate students interact with renowned researchers in their field. Participants' Conferences are entirely self supporting and all participants, whether presenting or not, pay their own registration fees and expenses. The accommodations are unusually affordable, however, and the  conferences can double as a family vacation. Following each of the conferences, the proceedings are published as an affordable book for the general public by the Collins Foundation Press.  www.CollinsFoundationPress.com
