Call for Speakers to be Listed on SC Humanities Roster!

SC Humanities is issuing a call for speakers to join our Speakers Bureau: Humanities Out Loud program roster. The Speakers Bureau is one of the oldest and most beloved programs of SC Humanities. Through the Speakers Bureau, some of South Carolina’s finest scholars travel throughout the state to share their interests and knowledge of the humanities and to spark discussions about human values, traditions, and cultures.

SC Humanities promotes the Speakers Bureau roster to non-profit groups and public agencies, including libraries, museums, schools, churches, and retirement communities; these sponsoring organizations submit a one-page application to request a speaker. SC Humanities will pay an honorarium directly to the speaker for an approved program; all other expenses must be negotiated between the speaker and the sponsoring organization.

SC Humanities is seeking speakers who can present thoughtful, engaging, and entertaining public lectures on humanities topics, from American history to literature to culture. (For a full list of humanities disciplines, please see our website: Though SC Humanities is interested in all types of humanities topics, we are particularly interested in finding speakers who can present about the following themes:

1) The Civil War
2) American Roots Music
3) Chautauqua-style performances of historic figures
