Confluence: Humanities in the Public Sphere is an IASH sponsored podcast that reflects a belief that scholarly work inevitably benefits from engagement with publics beyond university walls.  In each episode, we explore projects by Binghamton University faculty and graduate students that seek to inform--and learn from--diverse publics in a variety of ways. Listen to us on Spotify, Google Podcasts, Apple podcasts and follow us on Instagram  for regular updates!
