2018 National Humanities Conference

November 08, 2018 at 12pm - November 11, 2018

The National Humanities Conference brings together the public humanities and academia to explore local and national opportunities and challenges, discover new ideas and research, learn about collaborations and best practices, and strengthen America’s humanities network. National Humanities Conference is co-hosted by the National Humanities Alliance and the Federation of State Humanities Councils. We’d like to extend our gratitude to the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities for hosting the 2018 conference, as well as the 2018 Conference Planning Committee. We hope you will join us in New Orleans in 2018!


Registration begins Summer 2018!

The National Humanities Conference strives to incorporate diverse perspectives and to ensure that that we hear from participants and partners in public humanities programming who would not identify as humanities scholars or practitioners. We offer discounted rates for the following categories of participants:

      ·  Students and contingent faculty.

      ·  Members of the public who have assisted with or participated in council or       
         university programs.

We also offer discounted rates for participants joining us for one day.

If you have a question about whether you or one of your session participants would qualify for a discounted rate, please contact Shannon Loburk at sloburk@statehumanities.org.
