For over a decade, the IHC Road Scholars Speakers Bureau has been sending Illinois' finest writers, poets, historians, anthropologists, and living history actors to present to audiences across Illinois. For a small fee, non-profit organizations are able to bring a humanities speaker to their community and share the Road Scholars experience with local audiences, friends and family. IHC takes care of the rest.
Our current roster features speakers hailing from 20 different towns and cities across Illinois who present on topics in history, culture, literature, music, politics, law, science, and other subjects that pique one's curiosity and surprise the intellect. We believe the humanities can help audiences examine the world in all its varied shades and discover in it the remarkable, the strange, the fantastic, the tragic, the humorous, and the beautiful.
So, whether you're a future host site or a potential speaker, we invite you to let your curiosity wander and learn more about the IHC Road Scholars Speakers Bureau.
