A speakers bureau dedicated to American history, the OAH Distinguished Lectureship Program is a dynamic, reliable, and easy-to-use resource for identifying and contacting leading historians who can share their expertise with your audience.

OAH Distinguished Lecturers speak around the country every year, not only visiting college campuses and addressing undergraduate and graduate student conferences but also leading teacher seminars and engaging general audiences at public events sponsored by historical societies, museums, libraries, and humanities councils.
