New research-focused podcast launches

September 2, 2021 | Campus Life


The new podcast will explore the many different forms that research, scholarly and creative activity takes on at MacEwan.

MacEwan University's Office of Research Services and Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications launch the Research Recast(ed) podcast on September 2.

Hosted by recent journalism graduate Brittany Ekelund and music student Dylan Cave, Research Recast(ed) explores the research, scholarly and creative activities happening at MacEwan and how our faculty influence and incorporate students, teaching and the larger community into their works.

"For knowledge mobilization to be effective, it has to involve impactful research that is disseminated in such a way that it resonates with people," says Dr. Craig Kuziemsky, associate vice-president of research and interim dean of the School of Business. "As we saw in the COVID-19 pandemic, the most impactful scientific knowledge may not get the uptake it needs because of how it is presented or communicated to society. The Research Recast(ed) podcast series has both essential ingredients. It highlights impactful research, scholarly and creative activities at MacEwan but also leverages the communication and design expertise from the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communication."

Each episode, Ekelund and Cave delve into a MacEwan faculty member's scholarly projects. Covering topics from theatre, community-based research and advocacy to mental health, neuroscience and everything in between, the podcast promises to be a journey for all curious listeners.

Created and funded in collaboration with MacEwan’s Office of Research Services and Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications, Research Recast(ed) is available wherever you listen and subscribe to podcasts.
