This conference seeks to bring together scholars from established and emerging disciplines and provide a platform for new research on radio, modernism, and technological cultures of listening more broadly, from the birth of radio to the post-war era.

Institutional relationships between radio and musical or literary modernism;

Literary, filmic and musical representations of the radio and radio listening;

Modernist aesthetics and the technological affordances of radio;

Radio, modernism and empire, nation, region;

Radio, modernism and the high/low culture divide;

Radio, modernism and the aesthetics of sensation;

Radio as musical instrument in aleatory music and beyond.

Titles and abstracts of 250 words should be sent as a PDF, Word Doc, or Google Doc to radioandmodernism2020 -at- by 1 October 2020. Include your name and institutional affiliation, if applicable. Please specify in the proposal if you have technical requirements beyond audio-visual playback. Submissions will be anonymised when reviewed.
