Connect: The Humanities and Public Life


Across the country, faculty and students are collaborating with campus and community partners in publicly engaged arts and scholarship projects. In their projects, “the humanities” expand from a cluster of disciplines into a process and practice. Join Teresa Mangum (University of Iowa) as she discusses the connection between the humanities and public life. 

A professor in gender, women's, and sexuality studies, Teresa Mangum directs the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies at the University of Iowa. She is the author of Married, Middle-brow, and Militant: Sarah Grand and the New Woman Novel (1998); editor of A Cultural History of Women: Volume 5: The Age of Empire, 1800-1920 (2013); and guest editor of special issues of Philological Quarterly, Nineteenth-Century Contexts, Victorian Periodicals Review, and the Journal of Aging Studies.
