Happy new year, and happy 20th anniversay to Kairos! This episode is released with a special issue ofKairos, and we're delighted to bring you a packed episode with some fantastic segments discussing new and big ideas about how scholars are using technology in their research and teaching. We're also getting ready for some new content and changes around here, so listen and join us!
Perhaps the most exciting thing for us is the announcement that we are looking for applications for our first KairosCast fellow. This is a new, one-year renewable position created specifically to invite YOU to join the KairosCast team, to help produce content and support the KairosCast network. We're quite excited about the potential here, so if you've a mind to collaborate and work with sound in academic contexts, this might be the opportunity you've been waiting for. Download the call here (PDF, 98KB), and send us your application by 1 February.
We also feature the first of many conversations with Cydney Alexis, and we'll be following her project #writinglandscapes as it develops over the course of the next year. And she's inviting all of you to participate. Here's a quick synopsis of the project from Cydney:
#writinglandscapes is a 365 (photo a day) project taking place on the social media site Instagram. Each day, I upload one photo—either mine or another person’s—to my #writinglandscapes account. Through these photos, I am attempting to materialize the intellectual labor and material realities of being a writing studies scholar. Sometimes the photos capture the material culture and practices of writing; others try to visually represent ideas pursued by writing studies scholars. Contribute by tagging @writinglandscapes or using the #writescapes hashtag.
Also, as a reminder, you can now add KairosCast to your favorite RSS reader with the following URL:http://kairoscast.libsyn.com/rss. You can find us us in iTunes now, and with any luck, we'll be on Stitcher shortly. Enjoy the episode, and subscribe!
