Podcasting the Humanities: Creating Digital Stories for the Public
NHC Virtual Institute for College/University Faculty and Staff
June 12–16, 2023
in partnership with the Digital Humanities Center, San Diego State University
This five-day virtual institute will provide hands-on training for college and university faculty and staff, including librarians, digital humanities practitioners, and administrators, to translate research, commentary, and community-sourced narratives into podcast episodes. Working in cross-disciplinary and intra-university teams, participants will learn how to express ideas in storyboard form, create and collect audio content, and edit their narrative into an entertaining, powerful podcast. All equipment will be provided, and technical support will be given throughout the week.
