Podcast #2: On Feminism, Facebook and Future-Archives
As we mentioned when recording our first podcast back in December, we at HTTP have long been planning to make them a regular feature of the website. Now, a mere four-and-a-half months later, we’re proud to present our second audio instalment!
In this cast, Alex, Muz, Simon and Melissa take to the airwaves to discuss topics as wide-ranging as:
- sleep (and the woes of getting too little)
- impending PhD upgrade exams
- academic writing and working habits (and why there’s so little information or usable advice on this for arts and humanities students in particular)
- archival research (both as we’re practising it now and as it may look in the future)
- the fickle nature of technology (and how some of us have learnt the hard way why it’s important to BACK UP your work)
More importantly, we also talk about the success of Women’s History Month on the website – not only because of the fascinating and diverse articles it inspired, but also because of the army of gobsmackingly talented new writers it introduced us to. Several of them have now joined the HTTP family full-time, so you’ll be hearing a lot more from them in the near future…
Anyhow, have a listen – and as always, we welcome any and all feedback about the content, format or even the theme music of our podcasts, so do get in touch!
