About the Humanities Podcast Network:
The Humanities Podcast Network is a growing collective of instructors, scholars, and independent creators dedicated to the transformative impact of audio media and the human voice. They facilitate conversations between podcasters in the Humanities, and empower and support teachers in secondary and higher education, scholars, and independent creators in the Humanities who want to incorporate podcasts into their classroom practice and/or create their own podcasts so they too can be heard, free of institutional gatekeeping mechanisms. This open and horizontal network aims to build affiliations, collaborations between like-minded folks, within or without the academy, who are committed to creating and teaching with podcasts.
This event is organized by the Humanities Podcast Network and cosponsored by Public Books.
