CMR Podcast

The Centre for Minorites Research Podcast is a student-led initiative, that reflects the CMR’s core values of promoting dialogue between disciplines on all aspects of minority research. Students from Social Anthropology, Film Studies, International Relations, Modern Languages, German Studies, and more will engage with leading figures in academia, civil society, and social activism to discuss minority issues in unique and provocative ways. The podcast series provides a space for students to creatively explore their interests alongside experts from a range of fields and disciplines to co-produce collaborative knowledge for the contemporary age.
