Office Hours With Brenna Byrd And Anastasia Curwood

Our latest episode of Office Hours is here! In this session, Professors Brenna Byrd and Anastasia Curwood join us to discuss their teaching, research, and interests. Professor Byrd leads off with a discussion of German culture and Turkish-German hip-hop while Professor Curwood explores her recent research regarding Shirley Chisholm. The two professors discover their common interests -- forms of social resistance, feminism, language, and identity and discuss them from two very different perspectives.

Office Hours is produced by the College of Arts & Sciences and airs on WRFL FM 88.1 every Wednesday from 2-3 p.m.

This podcast was produced by Casey Hibbard.
