Podcast: Smaller Narratives for a Larger World

“Smaller Narratives for a Larger World” is an interdisciplinary public humanities and social sciences podcast created by graduate students at Binghamton University, State University of New York. The hosts Gillian Kenah (English), Lauren Pearce (Anthropology), and Alan Palacios (Comparative Literature) discuss a variety of topics with guests ranging from academics and activists to creatives and practitioners. The podcast, which will run in its current form through the end of May 2021, shares and discusses stories beyond what is conservatively categorized as “literature”, to recognize their significance on both an individual and community level. This project is a new, interdisciplinary iteration of the radio show project “Broadcasting World Literature”, which aired on WHRW (Harpur Radio Workshop) between 2018-2020. “Smaller Narratives for a Larger World” is co-sponsored by the Departments of Comparative Literature and Anthropology at Binghamton University.
