NHC 2019 Schedule at a Glance – First Look!
“For the first time in our organizational history, the National Humanities Conference will be held outside the continental US, in the powerful realm of Oceania. As Pacific Island cohosts – Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities, Humanities Guåhan, Northern Marianas Humanities Council, and Amerika Samoa Humanities – we have worked hard to put together a number of place-based program experiences for our humanities community. These experiences are a small example of our brilliant and complex communities and histories in our islands.” – Aiko Yamashiro, executive director of Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities.
Following is the initial conference schedule at a glance. Please note the schedule will be modified weekly until registration launches (July/August 2019) as events, sessions, tours, speakers, and other information are confirmed. Don’t miss an update!
