Supporting the Humanities

The Association continues to make common cause with the US humanities community to support the cultivation and dissemination of research-based knowledge:

  • The Association sponsored the  2022 National Humanities Conference in Los Angeles, hosted by the Federation of State Humanities Councils and the National Humanities Alliance (NHA).
  • The Association also sponsored Humanities Advocacy Day 2023 during which state-based delegations returned to Capitol Hill to meet in person with Members of Congress and their staffs. Executive Director Peter Berkery and President Charles Watkinson (Michigan) attended as advocates.
  • Peter Berkery continued to serve on the NHA’s Board of Directors, having been elected in spring 2022 for a two-year term.
