We the People in Iowa: Exploring Ethnicity, Identity and Diversity

To support exhibition development, scholarly presentations, and publications. A regrants program will include speakers bureau discussions, local humanities programming, documentary film projects, and conferences and seminars.

Humanities Iowa proposes to administer Council-conducted programs and to make re-grants to Iowan nonprofits. Applicants for WE THE PEOPLE funding will be encouraged to design programs and projects that capture both the heritage and contemporary concerns of Iowans. Historical trends and significant current events, notable personages and accomplishments, and cultural contributions of Americans can all be examined through the lens of the humanities. Of particular interest are projects that explore how cultural and ethnic diversity has informed and challenged our collective ideas of identity.
