In each episode, academics from the Faculty will discuss what the relevance of their discipline is in the modern world and what the future holds for their fields of study.
Through these discussions, the Faculty will demonstrate how arts and humanities disciplines make a valuable contribution to society and showcase the enthusiasm and expertise of its scholars.
The podcast will be released weekly on Wednesdays, with the first series featuring academics from the departments of Comparative Literature, French Studies, Classics, History and Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies (SPLAS).
"Arts and Humanities disciplines, whether the study of literature, history, philosophy, media, language or theology, offers us fascinating content, content that will change the way we live and the way we interact with the world. They also offer us tools with which to think and with which to better understand the world.
This podcast series showcases not just the ideas but also the passion in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities around the contributions we make. That passion is really powerful and I wanted to give those voices a platform and everyone a chance to hear them."– Professor Marion Thain, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Humanities
