NiCHE Conversations are 10-20 minute casual conversations with NiCHE contributors about their NiCHE contributions on Instagram Live. Afterwards these conversations are available on our IGTV channel, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.
These conversations build upon an author’s blog post(s) by asking them to:
- Reiterate their ideas
- More fully flesh out their research or writing process
- Connect their post to broader issues and fields of thought
- Speak to personal aspects of their research
