What, when & where

Call for Applications 2018 | C19 Podcast Subcommittee

The C19 Podcast Subcommittee seeks new members for 2019-2021! Authors welcome applications from scholars of all ranks across a diverse range of voices and experiences who are committed to public scholarship and collaboration. Join us in the building of a transnational public platform for
vibrant, dynamic approaches to long nineteenth century American studies broadly defined.

Duties include developing episodes related to the biennial conference, offering support and post-production help to episode creators, assisting promotion, and helping to shape the direction and practices of the podcast as a whole. Creativity with audio and podcast format, plus a willingness
to think across disciplinary, institutional, academic/non-academic lines is encouraged!
Prior experience specific to podcasting is appreciated but not required: mentoring as well as technical and production training will be essential to becoming a part of the podcast team.


Make your voice heard! The C19 Podcast is a stage for public scholarship on American literature, history, and culture. The immersive experience of podcasts builds relationships to listeners through the pleasures of oral storytelling and the comforts of conversation with an everyday ease granted by the medium’s mobility. We invite proposals from individuals and collaborators of all ranks for single podcast episodes on creative, thoughtful approaches to critical topics that can engage C19 members and the wider public.
No previous experience with podcasting is required. However, while the C19 Podcast Subcommittee will assign producers to help guide technical development, applicants will be expected to produce their own audio files. Any requirements for significant production assistance from the Subcommittee should be noted in the application.
Authors seek proposals on any topic relating to long nineteenth-century American literature, culture, and history. Episode topics might include:-

  • – Archival discoveries;
  • – Discussions of new books in the field, new scholarly trends, or new J19 issues;
  • – Appearances by granting agency officers or editors of journals or presses;
  • – Previews of upcoming conferences or symposia;
  • – Resources and/or workshops on conference proposals, writing a dissertation, or applying to a conference, or starting a new book project;
  • – Reports on academic activism, pedagogy, and inclusion, past and present;
  • – Considerations of current political, cultural, and social developments in the context of the nineteenth century;
  • – Discussions of pedagogical approaches
  • – Tips and resources for undergraduates, graduates, and/or NTT and junior faculty onnavigating the academic or alt-ac landscape.

Possible formats may include (but are not limited to) narrative expositions, interviews, analyses of underrepresented texts, and panel discussions.
Applications should include a brief proposal, CV(s), and an appendix.
