A&H Podcasts


The School of Arts and Humanities, its Centers, Faculty, Staff, and Students participate in, and host, several podcasts:

Ackerman Center Podcast

Created in response to a need to connect in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ackerman Center Podcast explores Holocaust-related topics. Hosted by Dr. Sarah Valente, visiting assistant professor of Holocaust Studies, and Dr. Nils Roemer, interim dean of the School of Arts & Humanities and director of the Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas.

Athenaeum Review Podcast

The Athenaeum Review podcast features interviews with leading thinkers about arts and ideas. Athenaeum Review publishes essays, reviews, and podcasts by leading scholars in the arts and humanities. Devoting serious critical attention to the arts in Dallas and Fort Worth, Athenaeum Review also considers books and ideas of national and international significance.

Launched in the spring of 2020 by the UT Dallas Office of Communications, “Comets Discuss” consists of talks with host Danyelle Jordan Gates (BA’17) speaking with UT Dallas faculty, staff, students, and alumni on specific topics related to current events and issues. A&H Faculty often appear on Comets Discuss.

Translating the World with Rainer Schulte

Dr. Rainer Schulte, professor of arts and humanities and Katherine R. Cecil Professor in Foreign Languages, and Dr. Sarah Valente, visiting assistant professor, launched Translating the World with Rainer Schulte, a podcast of the Center for Translation Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas on August 28, 2020. The podcast highlights translators who give presence to foreign writers in English, interviews with writers and their translators, portraits of contemporary international writers, and bilingual readings of poetry. The Podcast is for people who are interested in international literature and cultures.

UTD Teach-In Series

While not specifically a podcast, the Teach-In Series is a series of virtual conversations inspired by student outrage and global anti-racist activism. Faculty, staff, and students organize teach-ins and read-ins organized around this theme. Sessions also highlight the justice work of people who are mobilizing to resist and unmake these living legacies on campus and our surrounding community.
