Inside Core, we’re excited about Core Podcasts
Inside the core, we’re very excited about a wonderful new podcast series, “CORECast”, which is currently in production. CORECast (aka Core Podcast) was proposed by Dr. Jon Radwan and Dr. Ruth Tsuria, both professors at the College of Communication and the Arts, and Rabbi Allan Brill, Cooperman/Ross Chair for Judeo-Christian studies. An initiative of the Institute for Communication and Religion at Seton Hall, this proposal received a seed grant from the Provost of the University’s Academy initiative and will be hosted by the ICR Podcasting Network .
Dr. Radwan explained how the podcasts will explore various topics taught in the Core I and Core II courses, Journey of Transformation and Christianity and Culture in Dialogue, both of which are required of all undergraduate students, from a faculty perspective. and students. The goal is to produce at least eight episodes over a three-year period. Each podcast will bring together a faculty expert with a student representative from one of the many faith-based organizations on our campus to discuss a particular core text that interests them both in one of the two courses.
CORECast will be hosted by the ICR Podcasting Network, which hosts the Institute for Communication and Religion Channel. This place shares the views of scholars on the contribution of religious traditions as well as how they are influenced by contemporary society. The Network also hosts a second channel, called Inter/Sections, which is associated with the Journal of Interfaith Studieswhich offers an exploration of interreligious questions, ideas and dialogue.
We at the core are excited about this exciting way to share the Catholic intellectual tradition offered by three outstanding faculty members. These podcasts can be used to enrich our Core I and II classes by multiplying the perspectives we hear. They will also extend the educational work of the core beyond the campus and, in turn, spread the word about what we do here at Seton Hall in the university core. Any faculty member or student interested in participating in this project can contact Dr. Radwan.
