Call for Papers: Emerging Research in Podcast Studies

Event Name:
Emerging Research in Podcast Studies

Event Date:
February 19, 2021

Event Description:
A virtual interdisciplinary symposium for graduate students to introduce their projects and discuss podcasting research.

Organizers: Jeff Donison (York University) & Alyn Euritt (Universität Leipzig)

Call for Papers:
Since the publications of Podcasting: New Aural Cultures (Llinares, Fox, and Berry) and Podcasting: The Audio Media Revolution (Spinelli and Dann) in 2018, scholarship on podcasting has blossomed and the field of Podcast Studies has begun to establish itself as a distinct area of interdisciplinary research. The speed with which this field is developing and the clear need for more work in Podcast Studies can be challenging, but it also provides graduate students with exciting opportunities not always available in more established areas of study.

With the aim of facilitating an interdisciplinary conversation in Podcast Studies and encouraging the further development of the field, we invite graduate students to discuss podcasting and introduce their podcast-related research in an informal 10 minute presentation and discussion at our international virtual symposium.

The symposium is an open space for podcast researchers, especially those who are just beginning, to interact with like-minded scholars who can offer feedback, support, and suggestions on each other’s work. We welcome projects at any stage of development: this is a place for us to share and work through our ideas together.

Because the symposium is online and international, panel times will be based on the availability/time zones of participants. To present, please submit an abstract with a maximum of 250 words by December 16, 2020 to Jeff at jdonison@yorku.ca. If you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to contact Jeff or Alyn (alyn.euritt@fulbrightmail.org).
