Who is Amplify Podcast Network?
The Amplify Podcast Network is on a mission to revolutionize scholarship and to create communities of support for podcasters who want to change the world. Amplify is home for creative soundworks rooted in serious scholarship, where accessible, sustainable preservation and publication are central to our work. Amplify supports the creation of scholarship that contributes to collective, public knowledge, born of research across the disciplines and interdisciplines of the humanities and social sciences, with a focus on anti-racism, feminist social justice, and community-building. Amplify podcasts explicitly or implicitly engage with the question of what constitutes scholarship by pushing at boundaries, whether they are formal, methodological, theoretical, or otherwise.
The SSHRC-funded Amplify Podcast Network encourages collaboration and experimentation via the medium of scholarly podcasting, with a focus on podcasts committed to anti-racism, feminist social justice, and community-building. We’re committed to supporting the creation of new scholarly podcasts, while also building the infrastructure that will support them, from new peer review processes to digital preservation tools to open access guides to making your own podcast.
Amplify represents scholarship that contributes to collective, public knowledge, born of research across the many disciplines and interdisciplines that constitute humanities and social sciences research. Our podcasts explicitly or implicitly engage with the question of what constitutes scholarship by pushing at boundaries, whether they are formal, methodological, theoretical, or otherwise.
