About Oregon Humanities magazine

Oregon Humanities is a magazine about the experiences, ideas, and beliefs of Oregonians. It is published three times each year, in spring, summer, and fall. In each issue, Oregon writers, artists, and readers explore diverse perspectives and challenging questions relating to the place we live and the people who live here. 

Oregon Humanities is a magazine of many voices. It embraces collaboration, learning, and multiple ways of knowing. It rejects simple explanations and single answers. It respects expertise and affirms that everyone is the leading expert of their own experiences. It strives to make space for stories by people who have been ignored, generalized, or oppressed.

Subscriptions to Oregon Humanities are offered free of charge to Oregon residents. Readers residing outside of the state are welcome to subscribe, and are asked to support the publication with an annual donation of $25 or more.

To join our mailing list, please click the red "Subscribe" button in the right column or call our office at (503) 241-0543 or (800) 735-0543. The magazine is also available online.

Oregon Humanities magazine has been published since 1989 by Oregon Humanities, an independent nonprofit organization. The magazine is made possible thanks to the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Oregon Cultural Trust.
