ASA Distinguished Speaker’s Bureau

Submit a speaker request | Community Partnership Grant Program

The American Studies Association is pleased to announce the scholars participating in its Distinguished Speaker’s Bureau. Speaking on a wide range of topics, the Distinguished Speakers’ Bureau brings leading scholars to your institution.

Speakers listed here are willing to give at least one lecture in the academic year on behalf of the ASA. Speakers donate their time to the ASA in order to participate. Host institutions pay a $1,000 speaker’s fee directly to the ASA, in addition to the speaker’s travel and lodging expenses.

All speakers’ fees are deposited into the ASA’s Community Partnership Fund. The Community Partnership Fund supports a competitive grants program open to members of the American Studies Association. The Fund encourages projects developed in collaboration with community-based organizations, school districts, public libraries, local historical societies, community museums, and other non-profit entities.

If you or an institution you know would like to arrange a lecture or need further information, please contact the Distinguished Speakers’ Bureau Coordinator at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). In some cases the scholars may be willing to speak on topics other than those listed here. The earlier arrangements are made the better chance you have of obtaining the speaker of your choice. Please do not contact lecturers directly.
