  The Sound of Things: Radio and the Public Humanities  
(Academic)

Rachel Hopkin is a radio producer and folklorist who specializes in sound-rich, narrative-driven documentaries that focus on music, art, and traditional culture. Her employers have included the BBC; the national broadcasting services of Canada, Australia, and the Netherlands; and National Public Radio and American Public Media in the United States. Hopkin's audio documentaries focus on individuals telling their own experience, with minimal narration by a presenter. Her subject matter has centered on musical and material artistry, especially those vernacular forms that may have been excluded from elite canons' balladry, food, craft, and the built environment. Her lecture at Virginia Tech will discuss documenting material things via auditory means, and the ways these projects can facilitate exchanges of knowledge across time, place, and circumstance.
