Queens Podcast Lab Announces Spring Learning Series

The Queens Podcast Lab develops research and educational programming at the intersection of the arts, business management, and the sociology of cultural production.  This collaboration, based in the Department of Sociology, is developing the basis for scholarly work in content creation and artistic entrepreneurship. 

This Spring, the Podcast Lab will hold its second online Learning Series, featuring media professionals and media-focused academics. Our goal is to give students a “back stage” look at artistic creation, the media business, and media research.  Click here to see a review of last semester’s programming.

We have a great lineup this spring. Members of the general public can catch these seminars on YouTube Live, where they can ask questions of guests. You can sign up for the Queens Podcast Lab’s email list here.
