About IAH Zoom Talks

August 5, 2020 | Sophia Ramos

Amidst the changes the Covid-19 pandemic has brought, we hope to continue doing what we do best: fostering great conversations and supporting, promoting, and deploying humanistic and artistic scholarship and creativity.

The Institute will be hosting IAH Zoom Talks, a virtual talk series featuring discussions during the COVID-19 crisis. Talks will either be focused on a particular scholar and topic relevant to the many unprecedented issues related to COVID-19, or it will highlight new works spurred by or created during the pandemic.
