Call for Papers: Emerging Research in Podcast Studies Symposium 2022

Event Name:
Emerging Research in Podcast Studies Symposium 2022

Event Date:
10th February 2022

Event Description:
A virtual interdisciplinary symposium for graduate students and early career researchers to introduce their projects and discuss podcasting research.

Organizers: Hanne Nijtmans (University of Groningen), Maxwell Modell (Cardiff University) & the Podcast PhDs

Call for Papers:
Following the publications of Podcasting: New Aural Cultures (Llinares, Fox, and Berry) in 2018, Podcasting: The Audio Media Revolution (Spinelli and Dann) in 2019, and our first virtual symposium in 2021, scholarship on podcasting has blossomed and the field of Podcast Studies has begun to establish itself as a distinct area of research. Spanning approaches and disciplinary boundaries, scholars are grappling with the very idea of podcasting and its implications for our culture and society. Podcast Studies seeks to draw these disparate threads into one coherent interdisciplinary conversation, offering a forum for scholars to share their current thinking.

We invite graduate students and early career researchers to discuss podcasting and introduce their podcast-related research in an informal 12-minute presentation and discussion at our 2022 virtual symposium.

The symposium is about sharing ideas, generating networks and encouraging interaction between like-minded scholars who can support each other’s work. We welcome projects at any stage of development: this is a place for us to explore and work through our ideas together.

We are delighted that as our symposium is online, we will be able to facilitate a truly international conversation with participants from across the globe. Reflecting this, panel times will be based on the availability/time zones of participants.

To present, please submit an abstract with a maximum of 250 words by 7th January 2022 via the following link:

If you have any questions at all, please contact Hanne ( or Maxwell (
