The ever enjoyable combination of reading, thinking, talking and writing has become a full-time occupation. Follow the link below to find out more about what I’m doing now, as a doctoral candidate at Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Time for some healthy cross-promotion of one of my other online personas. The handy digital recording equipment that I’ve been using for my interviews during this project has also allowed me to launch into another creative sphere – podcasting. I’ve been blogging personally for a couple of years now, and with this and other blogs, have begun to experiment with the medium for academic projects as well.
As way of practising and exploring the podcast format, I’ve been producing an occasional podcast for a couple of months now, which is promoted through the iTunes store and my personal blog ontheroad. While the majority of my interviews with Henk Döll and Joost Swarte are remaining offline for now, episode five of the ontheroad podcast is a more or less unedited audio walk through Joost Swarte’s home town of Haarlem, near Amsterdam in the Netherlands. It was recorded after I had interviewed him, when he suggested we go for a meander through the bustling market town to see the theatre that he designed with Henk Döll, and a more recent social housing project on an adjacent site. Follow the links above to download the episode or (better still) subscribe to the podcast so that you get every episode as soon as it’s released.
