    Episode 3 - Humanities at the Barnum Museum

    How have curators and other professionals working in museum and galleries made use of the internet and social media to reach people, as so much of our lives has moved online? And how can training in the humanities inform this creative work? In this episode, Jon Sozek speaks with two people well-positioned to address these questions: Kathy Maher, Executive Director at the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, CT, and Ariana Williams, a senior BA degree candidate in the humanities at Albertus Magnus College, who interned at the Barnum Museum in the summer of 2022.

    Episode 2 - Politics and the love of wisdom

    Episode 2 - Politics and the love of wisdom

    What has politics to do with philosophy? In this episode, Jon Sozek interviews Devin Avshalom-Smith, Alder of Newhallville (Ward 20) in the City of New Haven, Connecticut. Devin shares about how his own practice of philosophy informs his work to serve the community of Newhallville. Philosophy, he reminds us, is a verb - not just a topic or field of study! We learn about Devin's published work on W.E.B. DuBois and how phenomenology and existentialism -- especially the work of Franz Fanon -- has influenced his thinking. The episode concludes with some reflection on the future of New Haven and Newhallville and a call to young people to "crack a book" and follow their passion -- all the way to informed action in pursuit of justice.
