The OAH Distinguished Lectureship Program features 42 speakers specializing in Native American history.

OAH Lecturers can be booked as guest speakers for in-person or virtual keynote addresses and lectures, book talks, to headline special events, conferences, and historical commemorations, and to lead workshops and professional development events.

Virtual OAH Lectures Offered

The Distinguished Lectureship Program has coordinated hundreds of virtual events for colleges, libraries, schools, historical societies, faith-based organizations, professional development workshops, museums, and community organizations. Virtual format options include live online presentations with Q&A, custom-recorded talks, as well as hybrid events (for an in-person audience and virtual attendees.)

This program greatly facilitates our annual history lecture series, allowing us to bring in very high-quality speakers at relatively low cost while supporting an important organization. Thanks!
