If you’re looking for a little inspiration this summer, or something to accompany you on vacation, MacEwan University has got you covered. Check out these no-grades-attached podcasts.
The Common Ground
Brought to you by the Office of Human Rights, Diversity and Equity, The Common Ground is a five-episode series that explores the narratives of hate – and those that counter it – in Alberta. Episodes include discussions about Indigenous knowledge, polarizing views surrounding immigration and refugees, and youth perspectives on addressing hate.
The Common Ground launches in September.
Artful Conversations is hosted by Arts and Cultural Management faculty members Katrina Regan-Ingram and Annetta Latham who interview leaders and innovators in the arts and culture sector. Although the podcast is integrated into the program’s curriculum, anyone interested in arts and culture will find the conversations engaging and thought-provoking. The podcast is produced in partnership with the Rosza Foundation.
MacEwan University’s Clock Radio podcast digs deeper into the stories and issues that matter on campus. Safer spaces, indigenizing education, student research and gender are some of the big topics our faculty and students talk about on this podcast.
Okay, so not a podcast, but this video series from the 2019 TEDxMacEwanU event will definitely make you think. Featuring outstanding alumni and faculty members, the speakers focused their individual talks on the subject of “truth told,” and covered ideas related to witchcraft, scientific skepticism, substance abuse and more.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
