    DPPH S01E04 Part 1: How to Talk About Race With Kids?

    This is part 1 of a two-part episode. In this part, we're talking to media practitioner and artist-researcher Prakash Krishnan from Do The Kids Know? about his podcast as well as the ways we can use our positions in academia to advance our activism.
    Contributors: Dean's Office, "Best, Concordia" Podcast, and the Ethnography Lab at Concordia.
    Prakash Krishnan (he/him) is a researcher and educator in the fields of digital media, archives, accessibility, and contemporary art. He recently completed a Master of Arts in Media Studies and is the coordinator at Concordia’s Access in the Making (AIM) Lab. Apart from his duties at AIM, Prakash co-produces and hosts Do The Kids Know?, a biweekly podcast exploring race, media, popular culture, and politics in Canada and occasionally moonlights as an artist, essayist, and comedian.

    DPPH S01E03 Part 2: Jazzing Up Syllabi

    DPPH S01E03 Part 2: Jazzing Up Syllabi

    This full episode serves to explore, discuss, and develop actionable practices to deconstruct syllabus and alternative forms of pedagogy, by looking at intersections between music jams and a classroom. How can we "jazz-up" our syllabus?
    In the second part of episode 3, our team explore decolonial practices around syllabus deconstruction and explores new pedagogies inspired by artists, jam sessions and other ways to work together that gives room to each player, but also improves our listening and our way to tune in. Building on lived experiences we also highlight some of the best classroom experiences that push the limits of student agency and create a new learning environment. Some of these explorations could potentially evolve the social dynamics, to become undisciplined and flatten awkward power dynamics in the classroom towards horizontality.
    DPP Members hosting:
    Jamilah Dei-Sharpe, Chesline Pierre-Paul, Albane Gaudissart
    Best Concordia Producer: Kris Millet
    Editor: Connie Phung
    Guests:
    Matthias Mushinski: Matthias is a PhD student in Film and Moving Image Studies at Concordia. His doctoral research is, above all else, a rigorous celebration of another way of being together that is offered in the social aesthetics of free jazz and its improvisatory protocols. In April 2022 he will begin a residency at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia where he will study under the direction of Linda Goode Bryant, Thomas Lax, Greg Tate and Arthur Jafa. An avid record collector and olfactory cosmonaut, Matthias spends his days meditating on themes such as beauty, (non)relationality, and the distinction--or lack thereof--between montage and ensemble. He is part of a listening collective that hosts a monthly radio show on n10.as titled Out From Outside.
