Podcasting as a Field of Critical Study
This online panel presentation will use the recent volume, Podcasting: New Aural Cultures and Digital Media (ed. Dario Llinares, Neil Fox, Richard Berry) as an opportunity to think and engage in discussion about the emergence of podcasting as a field of critical study. Hosted by SpokenWeb podcast series director Hannah McGregor, the session will open with a presentation by one of the editors of the scholarly collection on Podcasting, Dario Llinares, in which he presents some of the main theses about podcasting presented in the book, and reflects on how the landscape of research around podcasting is rapidly developing. We will then hear brief position papers from respondents Stacey Copeland (SFU), Elena Razlogova (Concordia U), Kim Fox (American University in Cairo), Michael O’Driscoll (U Alberta) and Deanna Fong (Concordia U), sharing perspectives on podcasting as a field of scholarly research and practice. The discussion will then open up to questions and participation from attendees.
Attendees are invited to read the introduction to Podcasting: New Aural Cultures and Digital Media in advance of the session (but that is not required!). At Concordia, the e-book is available here: https://link-springer-
