Welcome to Context, A Humanities Podcast for These Interesting Times

We are all fellow travelers on this journey through humanity/the human experience. The humanities deepen our understanding of what it means to be human by exploring history, politics, literature and more to help us navigate the world around us. Join IHC staff as we talk with scholars, experts, and keepers of knowledge across Idaho’s communities to share what they are thinking, writing, and talking about. Context will be your guide as you explore the humanities.

For more information, please contact our host Johanna Bringhurst, Program Officer, at
