The co-producers of Books Aren’t Dead, a podcast with authors of books and games that deal with the intersection of feminism, new technology, new media and digital spaces, is looking for contributors/collaborators. Books Aren’t Dead is affiliated with the Fembot Collective and the peer-reviewed journal Ada.  


We invite graduate student/junior scholars/faculty interested in interviewing and/or profiling authors, makers and scholars of new publications/games/digital projects that deal with any of these themes. The goal of Books Aren’t Dead is to provide a forum for discussing and promoting new feminist works and to facilitate networking among feminist scholars, junior faculty, and particularly, graduate students. These interviews are designed as audio book reviews, highlighting the scholar featured while also providing the interviewer with a publication. The co-producers will provide support as needed throughout the process, as our goal is to build a pool of interviewers and contributors.


We accept submissions from potential interviewers, submissions of books to be considered, or potential interviewers. We also have a list of books to be considered for review. No technical knowledge of podcasting is required, we will help with all steps of the process.
