Will IU have a giant vaccination pod in a couple months’ time?
Will vaccinations be required for students to come back to campus in the fall? What WAS that lingering cough I had right before the outbreak?
Sounds like the kind of thing you’d ask Aaron Carroll.

IU Archives of African American Music and Culture Director Tyron Cooper has an insider’s view of Black music and the culture behind it, much of which goes back to the Black church.
He says that’s part of what makes AAAMC different: it looks at the broad context and origins of Black music, and makes it accessible for both scholarship and casual listening.
Cooper joins Dean Shanahan on Through the Gates to tell us more about the archives and share AAAMC Speaks, a documentary series hosted by the archives in partnership with the Office of the Provost.
The series brings the archives alive in a series of interviews with industry executives and performers in various genres of Black music. The first episode on Eddie Gilreath shows one of the first Black professionals to work at the executive level in the music industry.
Coming up are features on AAAMC founding director Dr. Portia Maultsby and the foundational jazz musician Reggie Workman.

Dr. Douglas Hofstadter has researched, written, discovered and created many things - his expertise runs from cognitive science to literature, to language, and to art.
His 1979 book Goedel, Escher, Bach became a classic in the popular understanding of the workings of our brain. Professor Hofstadter has since written many things - some playful inquiries, some piercing meditations, some all at once. Since 1977, he has held a professorship at IU that started in computer science and has spanned many departments.
Dean Shanahan, Professor Elaine Monaghan and Producer Violet Baron sat down with Professor Hofstadter to hear his take on his writings, and on using musings on language to take on life.
When IDS reporter Lexi Haskell came back to campus after a summer of strict quarantine with her family, she knew there was some level of risk.

This question was at the heart of her popular column for the IDS this fall, and it got a lot of buzz around IU and beyond it. Elaine Monaghan and Violet Baron speak with Lexi about the column, her experience, and her feelings now that she’s on the other side.
