Institute for the Study of Culture & Society

Established in 1996, the Institute for the Study of Culture & Society (ICS) is a public humanities hub at Bowling Green State University. Our aim is to encourage innovation in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, and to communicate the value and significance of that work to the wider public.

OUR MISSION
The Institute for the Study of Culture & Society supports faculty collaboration across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and serves as an incubator for innovative research and teaching. ICS supports the academic goals of BGSU by helping faculty to develop, communicate, and disseminate their scholarly and creative work to constituencies across campus and throughout the region. With our public events and outreach efforts, we bring issues of vital national and global importance to Northwest Ohio, and, in turn, bring community knowledge back into the university.

Hanasono, an Associate Professor from Bowling Green State University’s School of Media and Communication, will highlight the findings from two research projects to reveal how culture, gender, media, and interpersonal communication factors work in concert to stigmatize and silence discussions about pregnancy loss—and what we can do collectively to shatter that silence.
