Lectures present scholarship on diverse humanities topics. History Alive! programs bring historical characters to life through well-researched and well-acted portrayals. Whether you want to learn about contemporary public issues, meet Mother Jones or John Quincy Adams, hear new perspectives on art and architecture, or explore the history of roads and settlement in Vermont, the Speakers Bureau lets you bring an informative and thought-provoking program to your community.
