Teresa Mangum, Director of the Obermann Center, is co-editing a new book series for The University of Iowa Press with Anne Valk, Associate Director of the John Nicholas Brown Center for the Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage at Brown University.  Humanities and Public Life will feature books examining projects using the arts and humanities to promote community building and civic change. These short books will meet the pressing needs of publicly engaged scholars and their community partners for models of rigorous work, critical thinking about best practices, and strategies for measuring a project's impact.
