Feminist	
  Podcasting:	
  Delivering	
  Scholarship	
  Outside	
  the	
  University	
   Walls	
   by Erin Fields  Recent attacks on the role of Women’s and Gender Studies departments in Canadian universities1 spurred an initiative from the women’s and gender studies librarian and the Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies (CWGS) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) to capture and more widely disseminate the “informal” work of feminist scholars at the university. 	
   CWGS	
  offers	
  a	
  lecture	
  series	
  on	
  Wednesday	
  afternoons	
  during	
  the	
  fall	
  and	
  winter	
   semesters.	
  This	
  series	
  brings	
  together	
  scholars	
  who	
  focus	
  on	
  issues	
  related	
  to	
  women	
   and	
  the	
  study	
  of	
  gender/sexuality,	
  including	
  post-­‐doctoral	
  and	
  visiting	
  scholars	
  as	
  well	
   as	
  faculty	
  both	
  from	
  CWGS	
  and	
  from	
  other	
  departments	
  who	
  are	
  engaging	
  in	
  research	
   relevant	
  to	
  the	
  mission	
  of	
  the	
  centre.	
   In	
  collaboration	
  with	
  the	
  director	
  and	
  chairs	
  for	
  CWGS,	
  and	
  with	
  help	
  from	
  a	
   graduate	
  student	
  who	
  organized	
  the	
  lectures,	
  we	
  developed	
  a	
  plan	
  to	
  podcast	
  the	
  series	
   and	
  deposit	
  the	
  podcasts	
  in	
  cIRcle,	
  the	
  institutional	
  repository	
  at	
  UBC,	
  which	
  was	
  chosen	
   as	
  host	
  because	
  search	
  engines	
  (e.g.,	
  Google)	
  and	
  indexers	
  (e.g.,	
  CARL)	
  can	
  search	
  cIRcle	
   and	
  make	
  its	
  content	
  readily	
  available.	
  Placing	
  the	
  podcasts	
  in	
  cIRcle	
  also	
  supports	
  open	
   access	
  initiatives	
  that	
  distribute	
  freely	
  available	
  academic	
  materials.	
  	
   Using	
  an	
  open-­‐source	
  editing	
  and	
  recording	
  program	
  called	
  Audacity	
   (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/),	
  	
  a	
  Samson	
  Go	
  portable	
  USB	
  condenser	
  microphone,	
   and	
  a	
  laptop	
  computer,	
  the	
  lectures	
  are	
  recorded	
  live.	
  The	
  podcast	
  is	
  then	
  edited	
  and	
   Fields, E. (2011). FEMINIST PODCASTING: DELIVERING SCHOLARSHIP OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY WALLS. Feminist Collections, 32(1), 26.  converted	
  into	
  an	
  mp3	
  file,	
  which	
  is	
  uploaded	
  to	
  CWGS’s	
  podcast	
  community	
  in	
  cIRcle	
   (https://circle.ubc.ca/handle/2429/26856).	
  Each	
  participant	
  signs	
  a	
  waiver	
  allowing	
  the	
   audiofile	
  and	
  presentation	
  notes	
  to	
  be	
  archived	
  in	
  cIRcle.	
  Each	
  item	
  in	
  cIRcle	
  has	
  an	
   abstract,	
  keywords,	
  and	
  descriptive	
  information.	
   The	
  cIRcle	
  community	
  has	
  been	
  added	
  as	
  a	
  link	
  to	
  the	
  CWGS	
  website	
  to	
  increase	
   dissemination	
  of	
  the	
  presentations	
  both	
  locally	
  and	
  globally.	
  Information	
  about	
  the	
   podcasts	
  is	
  currently	
  found	
  on	
  the	
  Humanities	
  and	
  Social	
  Sciences	
  news	
  blog	
  at	
  Koerner	
   Library	
  (http://hss.library.ubc.ca/blog/centre-­‐for-­‐womens-­‐and-­‐gender-­‐studies-­‐ podcasts/),.	
  	
  By	
  the	
  end	
  of	
  January	
  2011,	
  the	
  series	
  has	
  had	
  over	
  460	
  views	
  from	
  such	
   places	
  as	
  Burkina	
  Faso,	
  Algeria,	
  Korea,	
  China	
  and	
  Germany.	
  	
  Due	
  to	
  the	
  success	
  of	
  the	
   podcast	
  series,	
  the	
  community	
  was	
  featured	
  on	
  cIRcle:	
  UBC’s	
  Institutional	
  Repository	
   Blog	
  (http://blogs.ubc.ca/circle/2010/11/17/cwgs-­‐research-­‐lecture-­‐series-­‐in-­‐circle/).	
  	
   Additionally	
  a	
  poster	
  session	
  for	
  the	
  Ontario	
  Library	
  Super	
  Conference	
  2011	
  highlighted	
   the	
  series	
  as	
  a	
  part	
  of	
  an	
  outreach	
  plan	
  for	
  interdisciplinary	
  departments.2	
  	
  	
  	
  	
  	
   Spreading	
  the	
  word	
  about	
  the	
  work	
  of	
  feminist	
  scholars	
  is	
  vital	
  both	
  to	
  the	
   continued	
  support	
  of	
  departments	
  and	
  faculty	
  members	
  in	
  “at-­‐risk”	
  subject	
  areas	
  and	
  to	
   the	
  development	
  of	
  diverse	
  collections	
  that	
  reflect	
  the	
  scholarship	
  of	
  the	
  departments	
   that	
  librarians	
  and	
  information	
  professionals	
  serve.	
  This	
  initiative	
  allows	
  librarians	
  to	
  get	
   involved	
  in	
  the	
  development	
  and	
  archiving	
  of	
  a	
  unique	
  scholarly	
  product	
  while	
   supporting	
  faculty	
  in	
  publicizing	
  their	
  research	
  efforts	
  to	
  illustrate	
  the	
  importance	
  of	
   their	
  scholarship.
