Have you heard? We've joined the podcasting world! NEIUideas, produced by NEIU Libraries, highlights the incredible research work that our faculty do. We've got more episodes coming this semester, but stream our first 4 episodes at NEIU Digital Commons.


Mary Thill, Humanities Librarian and Reference Coordinator, interviewed Brandon Bisbey, Associate Professor of Spanish, for our first episode. They discussed Professor Bisbey's research on Latin American addiction memoirs, specifically El Pericazo Sarniento (Selfie con Cocaina) by Carlos Velázquez.

Our second episode includes an interview with Jen Banas, Associate Professor of Health Sciences and Physical Education, who spoke with Michelle Oh, Education Librarian, and Lisa Wallis, Associate Dean of Libraries and eResources and Systems Librarian about her research involving Chicago Public Library teen librarians and how urban teens do (or don't) utilize public librarians when they have health-related questions. 

NEIUideas co-host and Social Sciences Librarian Ed Remus took the reins for our third episode with Mateo Farzaneh, Associate Professor of History, where they discussed Professor Farzaneh's new book on Iranian women and their participation in the Iran-Iraq war.

Beth A. Reinke, Assistant Professor of Biology, demystified the function of animal coloration for Ed Remus and Alyssa Vincent, Digital Scholarship Librarian, in our fourth episode.
