In the past few years research on the radio has been experiencing a
revival in the social sciences and humanities. Interdisciplinary studies
inspired by various approaches such as sound studies or the anthropology
of the senses address cultural identity politics through the radio, such
as the history of broadcasting stations, their programming, or sound
archives as audiovisual heritage. Not least, they address the meaning of
the radio for and within the everyday life world by investigating the
reception of radio broadcasts or the shift towards online media.
The conference draws on current research to loom at the acoustic
dimension of cultural politics or identity politics on and through the
radio, including the actors, practices, discourses, and the
institutional and societal contexts. It looks to bring together the
different research threads within the socials sciences and humanities on
identity politics, popular/folk music and the radio as a research theme.
Researchers are invited to send proposals that deal with the radio
ethnographically, in case studies, theoretically, from historical or
contemporary perspectives, or by applying artistic or museological
approaches. Above all, in addition to scholars from folklore/social and
cultural anthropology or related fields, researchers from neighboring
disciplines are especially welcomed to send abstracts. Acoustic
contributions will also be considered and may be included in papers.
Conference languages are German, English, and French.
Interested colleagues are invited to send proposals with an abstract of
max. 300 words, short CV, and technical requirements via email to:
Johannes Müske, johannes.mueske@uzh.ch

Decisions will be announced by Nov. 30, 2015. It will be possible to
substitute travel expenses in some cases, however, cannot be guaranteed.
