A new series featuring books by Iowa scholars and critical thinkers from a range of disciplines, including history, religion, the arts, public policy, the sciences, and much more.
The Book Matters series seeks to celebrate the written works of faculty members from a range of disciplines at the University of Iowa -- The Writing University. By shining a light on published works from a wide range of disciplines, these events are an opportunity for scholars and critical thinkers from across the campus and community to come together to discuss ideas, meet new colleagues, and celebrate the writing strengths of UI scholars outside of traditional writing departments.
A companion program for Creative Matters, Book Matters is hosted by the Office of the Vice President for Research. The events are free and open to the public.
Please join us for an interdisciplinary conversation at the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art featuring three UI community-engaged scholars who have recently published co-authored, collaborative works. A Q&A will follow the remarks.
Join the Office of the Vice President for Research as we celebrate faculty who have published books during 2022 and spring 2023. President Barbara Wilson will make remarks at 5 p.m.
