Humanities Research Institute has a new podcast

Humanities Research Institute at the University of Illinois has a new podcast, Off the Shelf: Revolutionary Readings in the Time of Crises, hosted by Augustus Wood. The podcast will feature conversations with Black scholars on campus. 

The first episode launched last week, and features Professor Lou Turner. From the podcast description: 

Professor Lou Turner (Planning at Illinois) makes the case for why we should all know the life and work of Hal Baron, a sometimes hidden but deeply influential figure in the struggles against institutional racism and economic inequality. Spanning decades and multiple movements, the conversation uncovers Baron’s prescient insights into the rise of white nationalism.

You can listen to the episode, and learn more about Wood, at the Off the Shelf podcast website
