The Transnational Approach to Radio History: A Cost-Benefit Analysis | Lecture by Stephen Lovell
Professor Stephen Lovell (Kings College London) will give the keynote lecture at the workshop ‘Inventing Global Radio’, of the project 'Connecting the Wireless World', funded by the Leverhulme Trust. Recently, Lovell published a book on the history of radio in Soviet Russia.
The workshop will examine the history of innovation in transmission and reception technologies for cross-border broadcasting. We will investigate the interaction of technology and programming, and depictions of the visible and invisible elements of broadcasting, the equipment and the ‘ether’. We will thus explore contemporary utopian and dystopian visions of the cultural, social and political changes that wireless could bring, encouraging dialogue between historians of technology and historians of culture. For more information about the workshop see the program.
