Note on the Interviews and Transcripts

All the interviews of Round 1 of this project (OSU College of Arts and Sciences grant cycle 2022) were held in the academic year 2022-2023. The conversations were held online via Zoom, in person, or in some combination of those modes. The interview recordings were carried out by Amrita Dhar.

The interviews were edited for length and clarity by Amrita Dhar.

The audio of these interviews is also available on Apple Podcasts.

The interview transcripts on this site reproduce, as closely as possible and without compromising readability, the actual words and sounds of the interviews, so as to retain the genuinely conversational flavour of what in fact were conversations.

Each interview page also contains select materials supplementing the conversation in question. We are grateful to each invited interviewee for sharing documents from their personal or professional archives, thus making possible users’ layered appreciation of the interviewees’ work
