Since 1996, the Maryland Humanities Council Speakers Bureau has provided engaging public humanities programs to Marylanders of all ages and backgrounds in every region of the state.  Some of our finest historians, philosophers, political scientists, writers, poets, and living history performers have entertained, educated, and challenged audiences to reflect upon a wide range of topics from a variety of perspectives. We are very grateful for the vital role played by speakers, host organizations, and audiences throughout Maryland who have made the Speakers Bureau a respected statewide program.


After an intensive, long-range planning process, MHC is reshaping its slate of public humanities programs with an eye towards longer-term engagement with the humanities in our communities.  


We will only be accepting Speakers Bureau applications through September 30 for programs taking place through the end of October 2014.  With the end of our current fiscal year on October 31, we will no longer offer the Speakers Bureau.  We will, however, continue to bring high quality programs to your community through One Maryland One Book, Museum on Main Street, Chautauqua, grants, History Day, and others. We are also in the planning stages for some new and exciting opportunities.


We are very grateful to the many speakers, organizations, and audience members who have been part of MHC Speakers Bureau programs over the past two decades.  We value these partnerships and look forward to continuing to provide opportunities for lifelong learning in communities throughout Maryland.  Please consider us a resource for referrals to speakers should you have the need.
