This year, the Liberal Arts Collective at Penn State is launching a conference-style podcast, "Unraveling the Anthropocene: Race, Environment, and Pandemic,” which will run during Fall 2020 to early Spring 2021. This podcast seeks to interview a variety of academics, artists, activists, or community members to feature their work and experiences as they try to understand, explain, alleviate, or simply capture the contemporary phenomena that fall under these themes.  Speakers will be volunteering to remotely record a 15-minute long informal conversation about their work or experience. Parallel events include a reading group and a closing roundtable. Podcast speakers may be considered for the final roundtable as well.   To participate, send a 250-word description of your project and an updated C.V. to libarts.co@gmail.com, with “podcast speaker” as the subject.  Submissions will be considered throughout the academic year, but those who contact us before October 15th will take priority for Fall episodes.  The Liberal Arts Collective at Penn State aims to foster innovative scholarship in the humanities that cuts across disciplines and to create a venue where graduates, undergraduates, professors, and professionals can collaborate to produce meaningful scholarship. For inquiries, please contact The Liberal Arts collective at Penn State at libarts.co@gmail.com and visit the website at https://sites.psu.edu/liberalartscollective/.
