Those interested in early twentieth-century modernity, particularly in the form of art, culture, and literature, may want to give the Modernist Podcast a listen. Each episode features a panel discussion that focuses on a particular aspect of modernity--examples of previous episode topics include modernism and race (Ep. 6), the politics of modernism (Ep. 11), and mapping modernism (Ep. 15). Episodes tend to be from an hour to 90 minutes in length, and panelists are drawn from an international community of modernist scholars in a variety of academic disciplines. The intent of this podcast is for academics to be able to "bring critical debates beyond the bindings of the journal and out from within the walls of the conference" in a way that is more accessible for a lay audience. The Modernist Podcast is hosted by Sean Richardson, a PhD student at Nottingham Trent University (UK) who researches queer geographies of modernism. Listeners can subscribe to the podcast on Soundcloud and iTunes.
