Later this spring, Indiana Humanities will launch a new thematic initiative focused on the ways we shape the environment and it shapes us. To help Hoosiers understand and talk about our relationships to the natural world and the implications of climate change, we will offer a speakers bureau of compelling talks and workshops rooted in the humanities and led by Indiana scholars and experts.
We currently seek proposals from scholars and experts to join an environmental humanities speakers bureau. We welcome proposals from across the broad field of the environmental humanities. We are especially interested in talks that connect to our key themes of the encounter, decolonizing the environment, connection to place and an ethic of care, the Anthropocene and the future, and water as a lens for thinking through any of the above. (Each of these ideas is elaborated further in the call for proposals.)
Indiana Humanities facilitates an application process for libraries, schools, civic organizations and other tax-exempt organizations to host a speaker. If awarded, speakers receive a standard honorarium of $400 per talk, plus mileage and travel reimbursement.
