To show my appreciation for my Patreon supporters, who have generously decided to support my YouTube channel (and, more generally, my life as an independent scholar), I have committed to posting three videos per month, which are exclusively made for–and available to–my supporters. The video titles and the date of the recordings are listed below. When you register on Patreon, you will have access to all the Patreon-exclusive videos. In addition, you will also be invited to participate in my on-going online events, if you’re interested in doing so.
