Franklin College & Willson Center call for proposals from doctoral students for Podcasting the Humanities

Through a Franklin College and Willson Center institutional membership in the National Humanities Center, we are pleased to announce a call for proposals to sponsor humanities and arts graduate students to attend the NHC Podcasting the Humanities virtual institute scheduled for January 10-14, 2022. The virtual institute, Creating Digital Stories for the Public, will provide hands-on training for PhD students in the humanities and arts to translate research, commentary, and community-sourced narratives into podcast episodes. The program is open to PhD students in the humanities and arts including students in art history, and musicology & ethnomusicology. Full details on the program are available here.

The Franklin College and the Willson Center will sponsor up to a total of six nominees for this program. The cost of the virtual program is $750, which will be covered by the Franklin College and the Willson Center.

Proposal submission and deadline: October 1, 2021

Interested doctoral students in the humanities and arts should submit a proposal to the Willson Center to include a paragraph statement indicating how participation in the institute will benefit their doctoral research and teaching at UGA, a copy of their CV, and a brief statement signed by their major professor supporting the proposal.

Students should submit their proposal as a single PDF file to Dr. Lloyd Winstead, Senior Associate Director at the Willson Center, at winstead@uga.edu by October 1. Notification: Early October.
