New cover art for Cloister Talk: The Pennsylvania German Material Texts Podcast has been unveiled, and it reflects the upcoming season’s slight shift of tone and content.
The new season, titled “Pathways in Pennsylvania German Studies,” will broaden the scope of the podcast and provide a fulsome exploration of the state of Pennsylvania German studies today, while exploring possible directions for the Pennsylvania German Studies of tomorrow. The new cover art captures visually both the mystery and spiritual depth inherent in early Pennsylvania's German Protestant traditions.
Season 4 of Cloister Talk is scheduled to debut in winter, 2022/2023. Check back soon for more updates! In the meanwhile, catch up on previous episodes at https://anchor.fm/cloistertalk.
