Humanities to Go Call for Proposals: 19th Amendment Centennial

New Hampshire Humanities is currently seeking proposals for our popular statewide Humanities to Go programs. Humanities to Go is an award-winning traveling speakers bureau offering engaging and informative programs on a wide range of topics through the lens of the humanities.

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote in New Hampshire and the United States, New Hampshire Humanities is seeking proposals for new programs related to the women’s suffrage movement and the expansion of voting rights. Many of New Hampshire’s educational and cultural organizations are joining together to commemorate this anniversary in 2019 and 2020.

We are looking for proposals on any of the following topics:

- The Nineteenth Amendment
- The Voting Rights Act of 1965
- The Equal Rights Amendment
- The women’s suffrage movement in the U.S. and abroad
- Voting rights in New Hampshire
- The expansion and restriction of voting rights in U.S. history  

Speakers applying to Humanities to Go should hold an advanced degree (M.A. or Ph.D.) in one of the humanities disciplines; however, New Hampshire Humanities recognizes that scholarship and knowledge gathering can be defined differently and respects such diversity of training and preparation. We expect applicants to have public speaking experience. The ability to engage diverse audiences and learners in compelling conversation about the program’s theme is crucial.

Humanities to Go speakers receive a stipend and mileage for each booked presentation. Our programs are presented to audiences at libraries, historical societies, museums, and civic and community groups. Through our new initiative, Humanities@Work, we also provide high quality humanities programming in the workplace. Programs are typically 60 minutes in length and include interactive elements and audience discussion. We are only accepting proposals related to the theme outlined above at this time.

To submit a proposal, please send an email with a brief program description and a resume/CV to Dr. Tricia Peone, HTG Program Manager, at tpeone@nhhumanities.org. We will begin accepting proposals in April 2019 and continue until filled.
