Humanities for the Public Good responds to COVID-19


Even as the University of Iowa has joined in the global effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19, the HPG team is working to find creative ways to continue moving our work forward. As soon as we have more information, we’ll be in touch here and via our newsletter.

Via the April 2020 newsletter, we’ll announce an extended deadline to apply to be part of the 2020-21 HPG Advisory Board.

We’ll also be in touch with the current Advisory Committee to arrange virtual meetings for HPG Working Groups.

In the background, the HPG team will be exploring creative formats for online meetings that we’ll be happy to share. For now, we hope that you are well and safe and taking care of yourself and those in your worlds—large and small.

Even as we prepare for the next few months, we’re grateful to be part of the local and larger communities who live out every day the myriad ways that the arts, humanities, and social sciences as well as the sciences help us to remain socially connected even as we protect one another through physical distance.

With thanks and compassion,

Teresa Mangum, Jennifer New, Ashley Cheyemi McNeil, and Victoria Burns
