INseparable Speakers Bureau

The Indiana Humanities INseparable Speakers Bureau is a curated list of fun and informative presentations, discussions and workshops from Indiana scholars on urban, rural and suburban dynamics in the Hoosier state.

INseparable Speakers Bureau

Indiana Humanities’ current thematic initiative, INseparable, explores how Hoosiers relate to each other across boundaries and considers what it will take to indeed be inseparable, in all the ways that matter. Whether due to real or perceived differences, Americans often see each other differently depending on whether they live in rural, suburban or urban communities.

To help Hoosiers understand and talk about urban, suburban and rural differences and connections, Indiana Humanities has curated a speakers bureau of talks and workshops by Indiana scholars and experts. From beer to water, Brown County to Gary, maps to Middletown, speakers provide a variety of lenses for thinking about the ways we are, or are not, inseparable.



To book a speaker, review the available talks in the catalog, then contact the speaker to arrange a mutually agreeable date and time to give the presentation. Speakers have a standard fee of $400 plus travel and lodging reimbursement. Your organization can use the template agreement letter below to formalize the event details with the speaker you select.

Throughout the course of INseparable, Indiana Humanities will offer stipends to cover the speakers’ fees. Applications for 2019 are now closed, but will be offered again during the spring of 2020.
