In partnership with Prof. Matt Jordan and our colleagues from the Bellisario College of Communications, we are now set to begin planning our video series and podcast series. In these programs we will engage in sustained conversations about scholarship in the humanities that inform and enrich discussions of the most pressing issues of the day. http://news.psu.edu/story/496639/2017/12/04/strategic-planning/penn-state-invests-2-million-support-strategic-priorities
