The Urban Humanities Initiative (UHI) at UCLA is a collective of interdisciplinary scholars, activists, and artists seeking to blur the boundaries of our respective disciplinary and epistemological habits. UHI's Digital Salon is an curation of listening experiences which, for the last two years, has explored the domain of urban humanities through a critical use of sound. 

Our Editorial Board is excited to announce our Call for Proposals for Podcasts for Season Three. For the first time this season, we will be peer-reviewing the productions. Our theme for the season is [dis/em/re/mis] PLACE [ment], and we are looking for submissions that engage with the following questions:

  • In an era full of increasing insecurities driven by anthropogenic climate change and late-stage capitalism, how is our understanding of places changing?

  • How are borders moving and transforming?

  • Who and what are being replaced at the level of the human, the plant, the mineral and how are these new divides reshaping the city?

  • How is city planning shifting and how do we decide what to remember and forget in these cities? 

Submissions should include a 1 page single-spaced abstract about your vision for your 20-30 minute podcast and EITHER a 2 minute demo OR a storyboard of your intended podcast. If you are interested in submitting to the podcast, please review our extended CFP.

Submissions are due to the Digital Salon Editorial Board at by January 31st, 2023.
