UCHRI Podcast
by UCHRI
4M ago
The digital wave is sweeping the humanities, raising provocative new questions: Should podcasting count as a form of scholarship, and can the dissertation be other than a book-length monograph? In this episode, we visit the National Humanities Center’s virtual podcasting institute, where four PhD students (Lauren Cox, June Ke, Mirna Wasef, and Kevin Woram) met and collaborated on a podcast about digital intimacies during the 2020 lockdown.

Living Through Upheaval: Under Fire
UCHRI Podcast
by UCHRI
4M ago
We explore the power and perils of fire. Standing apart from water, earth, and air, fire is discussed as a centerpiece of human developments, dynamics, and transformations, of narration across most all modes and forms of cultural expression, and as a catalyst for developments in food and shelter, not to mention sometimes unwelcome, if significant shifts in our contemporary culture. Joined by: Elizabeth Hoover (UC Berkeley), Abrahm Lustgarten (ProPublica), Elizabeth Povinelli (Columbia), Brandi Summers (UC Berkeley), and Karen Tei Yamashita (UC Santa Cruz ..read more

Race at Boiling Point: Powers of the False
UCHRI Podcast
by UCHRI
4M ago
Counterfeit is our culture, our history forged, our idols fraudulent. We seek sources of truth as an active concept. But when the line dividing fact from fiction is buried beneath layers of bigotry, senselessness, and corruption, supposition becomes indistinguishable from the real, and we risk mortal wounds as victims to the powers of the false. How can we reinvigorate mechanisms of scrutiny and systems of representation? Where are the spaces from which the silenced might emerge? On Friday, August 14, at 12:00 pm PDT, UCHRI hosted Race at Boiling Point: Powers of the False, a conversation with ..read more

UCHRI Podcast

We need to talk about work, and what’s not working, in graduate school. Graduate students are instructors, teaching assistants, research assistants, and researchers, but our stipends are often not enough to make ends meet. First, we look back at the Columbia University graduate student strikes with Sourav Chatterjee, a PhD student at the Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies program at Columbia. Then we chat with Dr. Nick Mitchell, Professor of Ethnic Studies and Graduate Feminist Director at UC Santa Cruz, about the jobs crisis, academic labor as labor, the UCSC graduate strike, an ..read more
