Episode 3.26 Masters of Text with Ames Hawkins

Ames HawkinsThis week we’re continuing the mini-arc on feminists who use podcasting for public scholarship, with the brilliant and delightful Ames Hawkins, scholar and artist and podcaster behind Masters of Text (that name tho). This episode seriously pushed forward my thinking on podcasting as creative-critical practice and conversation as the feminist co-creation of knowledge, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Also, here are some links:

  2. I’m currently about halfway through this episode and what Ames said about writing scholarly papers not allowing her to play with the sentence and how she always resisted writing them resonated with me so intensely I’m still feeling it. That is everything I didn’t realize I struggled with in academic literature courses in a nutshell.

    I don’t necessarily have a point to this comment, and in haven’t even finished listening to the entire episode. I felt the strong need to share this epiphany I had.
