PhD+ Stephanie Montgomery and Melissa Brzycki: “Podcasting Pop Culture – Engaging Public Audiences in East Asian History”

April 20, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm  |  Digital Scholarship Commons, McHenry Library


“Podcasting Pop Culture – Engaging Public Audiences in East Asian History”
Stephanie Montgomery and Melissa Brzycki
A Special PhD+ Event at the VizWall (DSC, McHenry Library)

Consumable anywhere, podcasts have emerged as an important medium for cultural discussions. Join us for a conversation about East Asia for All, a public history podcast that provides nuanced discussion and context for English-speaking fans of East Asian popular culture. History graduate students Melissa Brzycki and Stephanie Montgomery created EAFA to reach a wide audience outside academia, but still allow for in-depth, “long-form” discussions. They will consider how, as scholar-educators, podcasting can help us hone our communication skills and challenge us to think about representing historical narratives in a way that is both informed and accessible.

Sponsored by the Digital Scholarship Commons, The Humanities Institute, and the History Department.

PhD+ Workshop Series
Please join us for the third year of PhD+ Workshops, hosted by The Humanities Institute. We will meet monthly, over lunch, to discuss: possible career paths for PhDs, internship possibilities, grants/fellowships, work/life balance, elements of style, and much more.

Please RSVP that you would like to attend this event. Lunch will be provided.
