Beyond the Books is a podcast from the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at research and the people who make it happen. Emma Aviet, a first-year PhD student of English Literature, and LLC Web and Communications Postgraduate Intern 20/21 is taking over for Ellen Davis-Walker as the host of this podcast.
