Established in 1978 by the Federation of State Humanities Councils, the National Humanities Conference was originally designed as a resource to bring together the nationwide network of the 56 state and U.S. territorial humanities councils and those interested in advancing the work of the public humanities in everyday American life.
Since 2016, the Federation and the National Humanities Alliance have partnered to make the National Humanities Conference available to both public and academic humanities practitioners to address local and national challenges through the lens of the humanities and to spark innovative collaborations, conversations, and research while highlighting the impact and relevance of the humanities in everyday American life.
