Diversity Stories, season 1

Studium generale and Dennis Gaens (writer, radio producer, lecturer in Creative Writing) are launching the podcast entitled Diversity Stories. With contributions by Silas Neumann, Hester Brands & Chet Bugter & Chinouk Filique de Miranda, Asu Aksu & Zahide Fürstenberger, Femke Bosma, Renske van Gelder & Tosca Mitkowska & Marieke Sytema (WIIS), Nina de Haas, Christine Ayo and Pelumi Adejumo.

The podcast entitled Diversity Stories presents a kaleidoscopic interpretation of the topic of diversity from a student’s perspective. With very personal stories about gender and identity, outspoken criticism of the fashion system, discussions on what your name reveals about you, a genuine Menstruation opera, extremely witty dialogues between two expats complaining about food culture, language and bureaucracy, and more.
