The Living Gender History podcast aims to bring history out of the archives and onto the public stage. We wish to increase the impact of our research by bringing it into conversation with local activists and professional communities. By engaging with activism, art and current issues with a gender focus, the podcast creates a space for dialogue between academic work and activism happening in our local community. The series is aimed at wider audiences than the conference rooms we habitually frequent, to include more diverse voices at the figurative table.
