Yelena Kalinsky (H-Net) will offer an introduction to podcasting for academics, which can be useful for research, outreach, or pedagogy. She will begin with an overview of different kinds of academic podcasts. She will also cover technical best practices in working with audio files, and then discuss what academics can add to podcasting as a medium.

Monday, November 27th 4pm-6pm, Workshop on creating Fulldome Art, Abrams Planetarium
Feather Metsch will present techniques on creating immersive fulldome art for presentation in digital planetariums and similar venues
Feather Metsch (Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians) is a digital artist and researcher whose mediums vary across several fields of art, science and technology, but most often focus on site specific immersive and interactive performance and installation. Feather studied fashion at Parsons University before becoming more interested in the materials themselves, later transferring to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago to study in the Fiber and Material Studies program. She most recently graduated from the Institute for American Indian Arts in 2017, with a BFA in Digital Art. Feather will be attending a technology and art-based interdisciplinary Master’s program in the fall of 2018. Feather’s recent projects have examined the duality of being half Native American and adopted by a non-indigenous family. She explores issues through the complicated lens of blood quantum in her ongoing series Blood/Quantum/Physics, as well as another ongoing series, including Watercycles, where she explores the pervasive yet invisible role that water plays in our lives, something that resonates deeply for the artist, and how she was taught to speak to her ancestors.
Her visit is made possible by the Abrams Planetarium, WKAR, American Indian and Indigenous Studies, Lyman Briggs College, and the Department of Art, Art History and Design.
