The Humanities Hotline is free and available anytime, day or night, to anyone with a landline or smartphone at 1-888-416-2018. Hotline topics change monthly.

The Humanities Hotline offers a menu of short Kansas stories, both serious and lighthearted, that are researched and presented by experts from across the state. Freddy Gipp, Founder and CEO of Lead Horse, LLC, shares the history and significance of powwows. Beverley Olson Buller, chair of the William Allen White Children's Book Awards selection committee, commemorates the centennial of "Mary White," William Allen White's most famous editorial written in memory of his daughter. Rex Buchanan, interim director of the Kansas Geological Survey, talks about Kansas petroglyphs and what they tell us about the people who made them and their relationship to the land. Sister Rosemary Kolich, professor of English at the University of Saint Mary, recounts Abraham Lincoln's visit to Kansas in 1859. These hotline selections are available through May 31, 2021.
