Postcards from Abroad is a 60-second radio spot broadcast twice weekly (on Saturdays at 1:04 pm and on Wednesdays at 8:58 pm) on KANU, the flagship station of Kansas Public Radio, based in Lawrence at the University of Kansas.
The series features content provided by the five international area studies centers at KU: Center for East Asian Studies, Center for Global and International Studies, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Kansas African Studies Center and the Center for Russian, East European & Eurasian Studies.
Every "postcard" gives listeners a brief and enticing glimpse of each center’s respective cultures from the contemporary to the ancient, from the exotic to the familiar. Quirky news within a historical context -- scripts are written by regional experts and university staff. Below is the archive of posts from CGIS for your enjoyment.To access all Centers' postcards visit Postcards from Abroad on Audioboo.
