What IS Humanities Iowa? What, even, are the humnanities? Check out this short video to learn more about who we are, what we do, and how we're striving to better serve the people of Iowa. 
Pursuant to Humanities Iowa bylaws, notice is hereby given that the Humanities Iowa Board of Directors (BOD) will meet on Monday, February 8th, 2021, to conduct its semi-annual meeting. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM. During the course of the meeting, the BOD will approve major grant awards as well as address issues of policy and procedure.
This is in response to requests for additional information about the fractured relationship between the NEH and Humanities Iowa. As you can imagine, this situation has generated a voluminous file, both in Washington, DC, and in HI’s office.
Humanities Iowa seeks nominations for members to serve on its Board of Directors. The nomination process is open and nominations will be received on a rolling basis. Those persons interested in serving are welcome to nominate themselves. Nominees must be residents of Iowa.
Beginning in February, HI will send David Plowden's photographic exhibition called A Sense of Place to the Homestead National Monument of America in Beatrice, Nebraska.
