2018 National Humanities Conference

Thursday, November 8th - Sunday, November 12th | New Orleans, LA




Welcome!

The Federation of State Humanities Councils and the National Humanities Alliance are organizing the 2018 National Humanities Conference in New Orleans, LA to bring the public and academic humanities communities together again to share best practices, encourage collaboration, and inspire conversation on how we can best use the humanities to respond to local, national, and global challenges. The humanities offer a wide range of tools for exploring solutions to contemporary issues as well as provide context for better understanding between diverse groups and viewpoints.

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 look forward to welcoming everyone to New Orleans November 8-12, 2018.
