Ways of Knowing featuring faculty from the UW College of Arts & Sciences

“Ways of Knowing” is an eight-episode podcast connecting humanities research with current events and issues. This season features faculty from the University of Washington College of Arts & Sciences as they explore race, immigration, history, the natural world – even comic books. Each episode analyzes a work, or an idea, and provides additional resources for learning more. 

“Ways of Knowing” is a collaboration between the The World According to Sound and the University of Washington. Podcast producers Sam Harnett and Chris Hoff – The World According to Sound – interviewed faculty on the UW campus in early 2023.
