Podcast for Social Research, Episode 37: At Year’s End with the Angel of History: 2019 in Review
In the 37th episode of the Podcast for Social Research, the last of the year, Raphaële Chappe, Ajay Singh Chaudhary, Mark DeLucas, Rebecca Ariel Porte, Michael Stevenson, and Cora Walters contemplate their most intriguing cultural experiences from 2019: art objects and films, music, dance, games, gardens, literature, television and national forests, the high-brow, the low-brow, and the middle-. Common threads include the rediscovery of older forms and genres, problems of nostalgia and novelty, time and scale, exhaustion and renovation, and what it means to stumble into an artwork and find familiar places, people, and things suddenly made strange.
