Since our humble beginnings as a personal blog, Figure/Ground has built the largest collection of scholarly interviews on the web, reaching a monthly readership in the tens of thousands. We were a finalist in 2012 Canadian Online Publishing Awards and the 2013 Edublog Awards, and received the 2012 New Canadian Weblog Award (education category) as well as the 2013 John Culkin Award for outstanding praxis by the Media Ecology Association.
