    (Re)Search For Solutions Episode 1: Cleaning And Greening

    Episode 1 of (Re)Search for Solutions discusses greening - the conversion of an overgrown vacant lot to a small, grass-covered community space - as a non-policy-based solution to gun violence. We interviewed Professor Charlie Branas, Chairman of Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health, and Keith Green, Director of the Philadelphia LandCare Program at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), about their research into the effects of greening in Philadelphia.

    Season 2, Episode 7 - Live from Podfest 2019

    MASCLab’s Podfest is A Celebration of Podcasting and Media-Makeing held each year at Teachers College, Columbia University. The event is hosted in the state-of-the-art Smith Learning Theater to provide an interactive and immersive environment for students, researchers, practitioners and community members to come together and share in the experience of listening.

    Our 2019 Podfest included a bit of live podcasting, where we hosted a panel to discuss all things multimodality. The panel included Lalitha Vasudevan, Ioana Literat, Haeny Yoon, Katie Newhouse, and Dalia Constantine.

    Listen in as they answer questions about making and youth story-telling, being open to various modes of inquiry, and the importance of multimodal research as a whole.
