National Humanities Conference Working Groups Detailed Information:
The National Humanities Conference provides meeting space for working groups to meet and continue an ongoing conversation. Conference working groups are seminar-like conversations of at least 8 people that explore, in-depth, a subject of shared interest. Working groups have a purpose they are working toward, a problem they are actively trying to solve. The working group convenes for a session at the conference, but also enters into conversation before the conference and develops a final product after.
Each working group will have two facilitators, responsible for organizing the pre- and post-conference exchanges and facilitating the conversation at the conference itself. The facilitators may decide whether the convening of the working group at the conference will be open to all conference attendees or only to the working group members.
