Season 2 of The Planchet podcast kicks off with a wide-ranging conversation with Dr. Irene Soto Marín, Assistant Curator of Numismatics at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology and Assistant Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Michigan. We discuss her work at the Kelsey with its rich collections of ancient coins and papyri (and related archaeological documentation), Linked Open Data (LOD), the value of the ANS's Eric P. Newman Graduate Seminar in Numismatics, and advice to early career researchers (ECRs) on building a professional network and tips for time-management.
Season 2, Episode 2 does something never before attempted in exactly one year of the Planchet: it was recorded live and in-person in New York. Host Andrew Reinhard conducted brief interviews with seven ANS staff members to learn what it was like working from home as a curator, photographer, or librarian, how it felt coming back to the office for the first time after months away, and what current projects are underway as things approach a sense of "normal." Each interview was conducted safely with masks at a physical distance of six feet.
Season 2, Episode 3 features an interview with David Hendin, ANS Trustee and long-time friend, scholar, and collector. The 6th edition of his book, A Guide to Biblical Coins, will be published by the American Numismatic Society in the summer of 2021. In this episode, Hendin recalls how he began collecting and studying coins, offers some advice on cleaning (and not cleaning) ancient coins, shares some stories of his encounters with dealers in Jerusalem, and talks about what's new in the latest edition of his Guide.
