Subject: NEH and Humanities Day Sept 12
As a member of the National Humanities Alliance, the American Dialect Society
is invited to participate in Humanities Day Sept 12 in Washington, DC: an
event "to make members of Congress more aware of the humanities community and
the importance of the National Endowment for the Humanities to the overall
humanities enterprise in the U.S. Plans for the day include a brief early
morning program over coffee and rolls focused on the effort to retain the NEH
with remarks by members of Congress, historian and author David McCullough,
and others; meethings with legislators and their staff organized by state or
Congressional district; and a final wrap-up session (debriefing) to compare
The National Humanities Alliance board "urges all NHA members to designate at
least one of their individual members or staff to come to Washington on the
12th and participate."
Would anyone like to be ADS' designee? We're not in a position to pay your
expenses, but you'd have our thanks.
Let me know if you're interested or would like further information.
