Re: Query: Scholarship on podcasts & podcasting

Hi Yelena,
My interest is more on education and educational uses of podcasts/podcasting. I leave here some of the references for papers I have found interesting.
All the best,

Re: Query: Scholarship on podcasts & podcasting

Hey Yelena! There are a number of great articles and even books on podcasts/podcasting that have come out in recent years. I hope this selection might be a useful addition to the list:

Berry, Richard. “Part of the Establishment: Reflecting on 10 Years of Podcasting as an Audio Medium.” Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies, vol. 22, no. 6, 2016, pp. 661-71.

Call for thoughts

I have posted this on H-World, but to generate responses from a different perspective, I'm also posting this request here on H-War.


Once again I'm staring down the barrel of a World History II course this fall. Swallowing the entire elephantine half millennia of history (to mix my metaphors) is always a challenge.

I'm looking for a new way of approaching it, and the thought occurred to me that I might try to teach it backwards. Perhaps someone else has tried this?

Re: References on Catholicism and Technology (19th and 20th centuries)

All of Ivan Illich's writings touch on Catholicism either directly or (more so) indirectly. A good starting point is Cayley's "Rivers North of the Future," which I think is Illich's last first-person "testament." Probably because the interviews came at the end of his life, he puts into express terms some of the theological concepts that were elided (if not altogether obscured) in his earlier works. You can find plenty of reflections on Catholicism (or Christianity, anyway) and technology in his earlier works, but I think Cayley's interviews are the best starting point.

QUERY> Electronically available indices of sutra/sastra texts?

Dear Colleagues,
there are a number of indices (either Sanskrit - Tibetan - Chinese or simply Tibetan - Chinese) which were created with a great deal of effort by scholars of the past. I wonder if anyone has digitized (I don't mean scanned) any of these, and would be willing to share their data with me.
I am thinking in particular of:

References on Catholicism and Technology (19th and 20th centuries)

Dear members,

I would appreciate any leads on fundamental texts (articles/books) that one would have to refer on Catholicism and Technology in the 19th and 20th centuries. It would be great if any specific texts on Catholicism and Technology in the global South could also be suggested.
