Welcome to Foreword! Our Faculty podcast introduces you to Humanities researchers at Brock and explores how their work can help us make sense of the rapidly changing world around us.
We’ll be talking with people from across the Faculty to learn what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, and why it matters.
Over the course of four series (and counting!) we explore everything from video games to Vikings, from posthumanism to populism, literature, and photography.
Our experts come from our faculty and graduate students in Canadian Studies, Classics and Archaeology, Digital Humanities, English Language and Literature, History, Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Modern Languages and Cultures, Philosophy, Dramatic Arts, Music, Studies in Arts and Culture, and Visual Arts.
Special episodes feature conversations with our alumni and content created by our students.
Join us as we ask some big questions and get some even bigger answers.
Transcripts for series one to three are available as PDF files. Series four transcripts are available as subtitles on each episode’s PodBean page.
