A professional organization for humanities teachers, scholars, and museum directors

     - Ancient and modern languages and literatures, written or oral
       - History
       - Philosophy and religion
       - The visual arts and architecture
       - The performing arts, including theater, dance, and music
       - Performing media, including film, television, and the Internet
       - Related fields such as archeology, anthropology, ethnic studies, women's studies, and history of science and engineering
       - Those aspects of social sciences which have humanistic content and employ humanistic methods.

       • Support the application of the humanities to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting our diverse heritage, traditions, and history and to the relevance of the humanities to the current conditions of national life.

     • Support the interchange of research and the scholarships of knowledge, teaching and service in the humanities through conferences, publications, and related activities in a worldwide context.

     • Provide additional forums for the exchange of ideas regarding humanities education in schools, colleges and universities, libraries and museums, and other contexts.

PRAISE FOR 2014 CONFERENCE

Thanks for a wonderful conference. It was my first HERA but definitely not the last.
     I particularly liked how presentations were grouped into panels; one of the few times I felt my presentation was grouped with the right folks and the right topics.
      Excellent job!
