We at The Junto are very excited to announce the birth of a new podcast. “The History Carousel” will connect the past with the present, and will feature a rotating cast of Junto members and guests. It’s part of our equally-new podcast network, which is going to allow for all sorts of podcasting shenanigans—many thanks to Michael Hattem for helping to set it up. Today’s episode, “Gender History and Female Academics,” features Sara Damiano, Glenda Goodman, and Rachel Herrmann discussing gender history, how to teach gender in the classroom, and how early career female academics navigate our world.
You can click here to listen to the mp3 in a new window or right-click to download and save for later. You can also subscribe to the podcast in iTunes. We would greatly appreciate it if our listeners could take a moment to rate or, better yet, review the podcast in iTunes. Finally, you can find us on Twitter and Facebook. As always, any and all feedback from our listeners is greatly welcomed and appreciated.
