WorldCanvass® invites you to join us for season thirteen of International Programs’ unique, internationally focused discussions.  

Joan Kjaer, director of communications and constituent relations for UI International Programs, engages her guests from diverse disciplines in thoughtful conversation about questions and issues of global reach and personal impact.

Live programs take place from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. and will be presented in hybrid fashion--in person when possible, virtually when necessary. Most programs will welcome live audiences while observing Covid safety protocols. All programs will be streamed on Facebook Live and accessible through Zoom. The shows are free and open to the public.

Please see the list of upcoming programs below and check this page as more programs are added throughout the year.

The programs are recorded as audio podcasts and are available on iTunes, the Public Radio Exchange (PRX), and the International Programs website. Videos are available on YouTube.  University of Iowa International Programs produces the series. Audio production is provided by Kyle Marxen.
