Feminist Podcasting as Public Scholarship
Secret Feminist Agenda is an experiment in public scholarship that begins from the premise that feminist scholars are accountable to publics beyond the traditional boundaries of the university–and that podcasting offers an ideal medium for engaging such publics. But by prioritizing accessibility and public accountability, this project challenges many of the norms of scholarly communication, including workflows, peer review, and the categorization of scholarly labor in research, teaching, or service. This talk will tackle how feminist podcasting expands and challenges our ideas of what constitutes scholarship, and the barriers that continue to stand in the way of feminist scholarship.
