Launched in 1983, the Speakers in the Humanities
program brings the best in humanities scholarship to thousands of people at hundreds of cultural organizations in virtually every corner of New York. To host a lecture in your town, just select a topic, contact the Speaker, and apply for funding through the Council. Speakers events must be open to the public and free of charge. If your application is successful, the Council covers the cost of the Speaker’s honorarium and travel expenses. Newly added are lecture topics supporting the National Endowment for the Humanities We the People
initiative (see this previous post
for information on applying for the We the People Bookshelf Grant
.) Speakers in the Humanities applications
for the 2008 calendar year are currently being accepted.
