Call For Speakers
Humanities Montana is looking for new speakers, new programs, new ways of delivering the humanities to all Montanans! If you have expertise in one or more disciplines of the humanities, like to travel and interact with people, and want to help Montanans think deeply and broadly, then apply to be a Montana Conversations leader.
Conversation programs can take many shapes, including:
• A moderated conversation in which the presenter gives a brief (15-minute) overview of a topic and then leads a group discussion
• A two-person program where opposing or complementary sides of an issue are presented
• Workshops that include humanities discussion and are not purely technical or craft-related
• Living history presentations (first-person portrayals of historic or fictional figures, based on research)
• Presentations that use video or other media
• Traditional 30-45 minute presentation with questions
This year we’re encouraging programs about Native American cultures and traditions, as well as current affairs (regional and national), but any humanities-related topic will be considered.
