NHA 2022 Annual Meeting and Humanities Advocacy Day
Join us March 14-15, 2022, for our Virtual NHA Annual Meeting and Humanities Advocacy Day!
This March we will again host a virtual event because in-person Capitol Hill meetings remain limited and very difficult to secure. This is due to protocols put in place as a result of both COVID-19 and the events of January 6th.
NHA Annual Meeting - March 14
The NHA Annual Meeting brings together faculty, administrators, and representatives from scholarly societies, museums, archives, and other humanities organizations to build their capacity to advocate for the humanities. The program offers sessions on recruiting students to the humanities and making the case for the public value of the humanities in addition to trainings for Capitol Hill advocacy. Explore the preliminary program To accommodate attendees in as many time zones as possible, programming will be held in the afternoon (Eastern Time). We will also offer ample opportunity to connect with colleagues old and new with virtual receptions and “hallway” conversations.
Humanities Advocacy Day - March 15
On Humanities Advocacy Day, state-based delegations will meet via video or conference call with Members of Congress and their staff. Last year, thanks to the virtual nature of the event, we were able to connect advocates from all 50 states and D.C. with their congressional offices. Help us build on these successes by registering today. Together, we will advocate for increased FY 2023 funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the Department of Education’s international education programs (Title VI and Fulbright-Hays). In the weeks leading up to Humanities Advocacy Day, we will offer an orientation on virtual advocacy and Capitol Hill advocacy more generally. New and seasoned advocates are welcome—learn more about Humanities Advocacy Day.
