Community radio and transnational identities

Mitchell, Caroliine and Lewis, Peter M. (2018) Community radio and transnational identities. In: Transnationalizing radio research: new encounters with an old medium. transcript Verlag, Bielefeld, Germany, pp. 33-46. ISBN 978-3-8376-3913-1


The chapter reports on the findings of participatory action research carried out in part of the Transnational Radio Encounters project, funded by the EU's agency, Humanities in the European Research Area, 2013-2016. Mitchell (University of Sunderland) and Lewis (London Metropolitan University) discuss the ways in which often-marginalized transnational communities use community radio to create on-air and local spaces where their experiences are given central meaning. The authors focused on minorities using community radio in the SW and NE of England, on mainland Europe and in Canada, noting how certain forms of aesthetic practice, including language, helped to carve out spaces apart from mainstream media, what barriers to access and participation presented themselves, and how such communities or stations archive the stories and experiences of communities they articulate in daily practice.
