New Season of Cloister Talk: The Pennsylvania German Material Texts Podcast will Explore Exciting Directions in Pennsylvania German Studies
I am delighted to share news of the upcoming season of Cloister Talk: The Pennsylvania German Material Texts Podcast, which will be titled “Pathways in Pennsylvania German Studies.”
After three seasons of the podcast devoted to deep dives into topics covered in my book, The Word in the Wilderness: Popular Piety and the Manuscript Arts in Early Pennsylvania, Season 4 will expand the podcast’s scope and consider what lies ahead in Pennsylvania German studies, and ponder how the scholars of today and tomorrow can build on the wonderful work of yesterday.
This new season of the podcast is sponsored by the Jacob M. Price Digital Fellowship at the William L. Clements Library of the University of Michigan and will launch during the winter. Episodes include captivating conversations with leading and emerging artists and scholars in the field, as well as close considerations of fascinating manuscripts. I look forward to sharing more information about the season as I put the final touches on it in the weeks ahead. Look for new episodes of Cloister Talk just in time for the colder, darker months: as always, I hope that the podcast serves as a contemplative companion for those who, like myself, find themselves thinking about faith, spirituality, rare books, and manuscripts.
