Annual Fall Conference

Exploring a Humanities Subject in Depth

Annual Fall Conference

Each November since 1974, the Vermont Humanities Council has explored a humanities topic in depth at its fall conference. Over about a day and a half, conference goers explore a humanities topic through a variety of lectures with experts in their field. Scholars and attendees discuss topics with one another and share in camaraderie.

Fall Conference 2020: Democracy!

Our Fall Conference 2020 will look closely at the history of democracy, from Athens to the present day, with special attention paid to the current state of democracy in the United States. What can we do to encourage more civic engagement? How can we work to bring people together when so many seem disconnected from our community? Join us in November 2020 to discuss!
