Pedagogue Podcast Interview

A couple weeks back, I did an interview with Shane Woods for the Pedagogue podcast. This past week, Shane received a digital scholarship award from the Computers and Composition conference--is it just a coincidence? All jokes aside, I was glad I had the chance to speak with Shane because he has had a really comprehensive and inclusive selection of podcast guests.

From the Pedagogue website:

Pedagogue​ is a podcast hosted by Shane A. Wood and sustained by the voices of others. Pedagogue is a podcast about teachers talking writing, dedicated to building a supportive community, committed to facilitating conversations that move across institutions and positions, and designed to help celebrate the labor teachers do inside and outside the classroom.The purpose of Pedagogue is to promote diverse voices at various institutions and help foster community and collaboration among teachers of writing. Each episode is a conversation with a teacher (or multiple teachers) about their experiences teaching writing, their work, inspirations, assignments, assessments, successes, and challenges. Episodes include voices from secondary and post-secondary teachers, graduate students, emeriti, distinguished teacher-scholars, and emerging teacher-scholars from high schools, community colleges, four-year universities, private universities, research universities, Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs).

2020 Roots & Routes Music Festival 

This past evening at SCU, I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with members of the Music department, English and Ethnic Studies to discuss the themes of genre-bending, political music as a part of the Roots and Routes Music Festival. 


The Festival is headlined by SCU's Frank Sinatra chair, Rhiannnon Giddens, who performs Saturday Feb.8. See her NPR Tiny Desk Concert below:
