Episode 97: The HUGEmanities with Molly Campbell and Krista Jackman

June 23, 2019

All In with Pauline Hawkins

Molly Campbell and Krista Jackman are UNH Lecturers and have started The HUGEmanities Project, a collaboration between The New Hampshire Humanities Collaborative, and UNH College of Liberal Arts. It is an initiative that highlights the engaged, active thinking and digital humanities work UNH students are doing. We discuss why the humanities are an important field of study, define the humanities through song, and talk about going all in.

Defining the Humanities through song: 1st song: “Strange Fruit” by Billie Holiday 1939; 2nd song: “9 to 5” by Dolly Parton 1980; and 3rd song: “For What it’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield 1966.

Episode 42: UNH Lecturers with Sarah Hirsch and Cindy Pulkkinen

March 6, 2018

All In with Pauline Hawkins

UNH Sarah and Cindy2

Sarah Hirsch and Cindy Pulkkinen are two of the 17 UNH lecturers who received non-renewal notices by mail in January. Everything about it was mishandled. Sarah and Cindy have dedicated much of their lives to UNH and their students. Once a month, I like to discuss issues in education on “All In”, especially how those issues affect teachers and the impact on students, because if we, as a country, aren’t invested in education, we will continue to have heart-breaking stories like the ones from Sarah and Cindy.

Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of their lives: 1st song: “Teach your children well” by CSNY; 2nd song: “The Rising” by Bruce Springsteen; and 3rd song: “Make a Noise” by Katie Herzig.
