This week, the Atlantic Studies Podcasts of Note blog spirals deeper alongside much of the world into the troubled miasma of racial protest, white backlash, and ongoing deathly pandemic. Episodes for this week focus on colonization, semiotics, and resistance. As well, look below to the Remembrance of Past Podcasts section for a couple episodes on doing history and the American Revolution.
For anyone who has supported the word “culling” during this pandemic, you should be ashamed.
For anyone who believes not wearing masks is a cultural statement about freedom or manhood, you should be ashamed.
Lives can be saved; they do not need to be sacrificed for economic gain or cultural myths.
Stay safe. Be strong in the abnormal.
Wear Masks. Socially Distance. Have Empathy.
