Episode 13C: Alias Grace Part 3
In this episode we discus penal reforms of the mid nineteen century, asylums and the Victorian spiritualist movement.  This episode concludes a three part series where we have examined the 2017 mini-series Alias Grace. This CBC production  is a fictionalized retelling of the events surrounding a murder trial in mid-19th century Canada. Over the next few episodes Sloan and Viktoria will unpack the depiction of pre-confederation urban life in Ontario. The story told in Alias Grace is only inspired by the historical events surrounding the murder trial and conviction of  Grace Marks. As such, rather than analyzing the events depicted, these episodes will instead focus on how well this min-series depicts the historical realities of life and society in the era. Alias Grace is based off the 1996 book by Margaret Atwood by the same title. If you'd like to watch the series yourself as we continue to discuss it over the next few episodes it is available on Netflix to Canadian service users at the time of this instalment being published.

Episode 1: Monster Movies, Interdisciplinary History, and Angela Smith's "Hideous Progeny."
Happy Halloween! Just in time for the tail end of the spooky season, we decided what better time than to discuss horror and its connections to interdisciplinary history.  Our first episode will delve into Angela Smith's interdisciplinary approach to her book ", Hideous Progeny: Disability, Eugenics, and Classic Horror Cinema,"  where we talk about how monster movies have permeated our cultural subconscious, even if there are traits that are negative representations of marginalized groups when put into context with their historical period.  Trigger warning: This episode will discuss descriptions of ableism and racism in cultural media. Listener discretion is advised. Citation: Angela Smith. Hideous Progeny : Disability, Eugenics, and Classic Horror Cinema. Film and Culture.

We are two friends based in Edmonton, Alberta and are undergraduate students at Macewan University. Vik: I am studying for my History major and double minoring in classics and English. Sloan: I am double majoring in Sociology and History. VIK: And we are also your hosts for the Interdisciplinary History Podcast. This will be a show where we examine history through its relationships with other disciplines. Sloan: We decided to start producing this show because we believe that there is power in the way we understand the past. Vik: and that the greater perspective  which comes from the interplay of intersectional approaches can have transformative potential Sloan: We believe that those who study history have a lot to offer and to learn from  those who engage in other academic disciplines, and also just for humans who engage with other humans Vik: and that the perspectives, methodologies and theories of other disciplines lead to a deep, critical, and more meaningful understanding of the past Sloan: Through interviews, discussions, reviews, guest speakers and more, Vik and I will delve deeply into the interconnections between history and the lives we lead. Vik: With a lot of chuckles and bad puns of course. Sloan: And all the charming banter two socially awkward nerds can muster. Vik: You can find our podcast on your favourite podcast directory under Interdisciplinary History Pod or keep up to date with us on our social media. Sloan: On Facebook, you can find us by searching Interdisciplinary History Group at Macewan, or you can find us on Twitter and Instagram at the links in the description Vik: On any of these platforms, you will find a link to our website to find citations, bonus content, blog posts, information about events and more. From there, you can subscribe to our email list so you are notified every time we share something. Sloan: you can also get in touch with us through our website or social media if you have an idea/suggestion for a topic you’d like us to explore. Vik: and before we sign off we would like to acknowledge that this podcast is produced in Edmonton on Treaty 6 land, the traditional gathering place for many indigenous people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home. Sloan: Our first episode will be up sometime in the last week of October. Stay tuned and stay safe! Vik: (whispers) Wear a mask. And not just for Halloween. Funky music fades out.
