Biology DEI Book Club

You are here

All persons affiliated with the Department of Biology are invited to participate in our DEI Book Club. Every 1-2 months, we choose a new book, and then we meet weekly to discuss chapters. This is an informal group and anyone can join at anytime (email alaine-hippee@uiowa.edu or andrew-forbes@uiowa.edu to sign up). Announcements of new books are shared with the department via email and via the Monthly DEI newsletter.
