Reconfiguring Radio

PhD Summer School

Room 23.4.39 (building 23, 4th floor, room 39)

No longer a young medium, radio keeps redefining itself. Today, the introduction of digital technologies alter not only the ways in which radio is distributed and received, but also the ways in which radio broadcastings are produced and perceived. New types of podcasted or streamed audio question the reach and relevance of the term radio, while at the same time realizing and re-articulating some of the visions associated with early broadcasting. This course takes the present transformations of the medium as an opportunity to discuss new concepts of radio, while keeping in mind that radio has always been subject to reconfigurations along the lines of ideological, political, social and technological currents. Considering new forms of online radio and distribution of sound through mobile media, the course encourages consideration of cultural, social, political and aesthetic aspects of new radio. We welcome participation from PhD’s and postdocs from all areas of cultural studies, anthropology, art history, media studies, journalism, and communication studies as well as from practice fields such as art, design and architecture.
