APGRD Podcast

In each episode of the APGRD podcast we invite academics and/or creative practitioners (directors, playwrights, actors, choreographers etc.) to talk to us about their research, archival discoveries, and creative practices. We often begin with an object from our archive to start a wider conversation; some episodes are accompanied by a complementary post on our Blog. The podcast runs during the university's vacations.


You can download or listen to recordings of the podcast episodes below, or subscribe to them on the University of Oxford's Podcasting site.

For recordings of our public lectures and in-conversation events, please see our Event Recordings page.
