Podcasting and the Maine Humanities Council: Integrating a New Tool for Public Humanities Education

Podcasting public humanities projects throughout Maine, a state of concentrated population and long distances. This project would expand the geographic and temporal reach of Maine Humanities Council programs.

The Maine Humanities Council seeks a Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant to design, market and test a "humanities on demand" podcasting capability, to be used across its programs to deliver high-quality humanities content to audiences statewide and beyond, who, for reasons of geography, mobility or economics might never have the opportunity to enjoy such events in person; and to explore ways in which the Council might comprehensively harness podcasting and similar emerging technologies as a tool for future program development.
