Intriguing, internationally focused conversations on issues with global impact featuring renowned scholars and thought leaders.

WorldCanvass explores topics that are international in scope and central to our understanding of ourselves as part of the global landscape.

WorldCanvass host Joan Kjaer leads discussions of culture, history, literature, language, politics, and art in an effort to illustrate and illuminate the complexities that make us distinct from one another while celebrating our common humanity.

Each WorldCanvass program embraces a different theme and is taped before a live audience at MERGE in Iowa City, Iowa.

WorldCanvass is produced by International Programs at the University of Iowa. Programs are recorded by Kyle Marxen.
