Here is President Henderson discussing NJCU with Mary Alice Williams. A summation of this almost 4-minute interview is included.
President Henderson recently met with the editorial board of the Jersey Journal. Here is the result.
Audio Arts was an innovative audio-cassette magazine first published in 1972; it contained interviews with artists, critics, and other luminaries from the arts. The Tate Museum has preserved and made these interviews, over 1600 of them, available online. Listen to Christo, James Joyce, Marcel Duchamp, and Paul McCarthy, among others.

The Smithsonian Institution’s magnificent Archives of American Art contains wonderful treasures. We will highlight two of them: oral history interviews and digitized collections of papers. The former site is comprised of hundreds of interviews with those connected with the arts, from administrators to educators to painters. There is a brief biographical note, collection summary, and transcript appended to each entry; in certain cases, an audio excerpt is also available. Currently, the latter site houses 110 artists’ collections online; these range from the letters of Albert Bierstadt to Charles Scribner’s Sons Art Reference Department. Hundreds of thousands of documents/texts/images, etc. are freely available. GREAT resources for art history or history researchers.
The BBC’s World Book Club is a monthly podcast where leading authors get to discuss their favorite book and answer questions from listeners and the studio audience. The latest episode features Neil Gaiman talking about American Gods. This program spans the world: interviews with Maya Angelou, John Grisham, Gunter Grass, and Amit Chaudhuri are some of the notables here. The program also features special presentations, such as discussions on the Great Gatsby, Great Expectations, and Pride and Prejudice. Originally a half an hour in length, each episode now lasts almost an hour. This is a delight for book lovers (you know who you are).
