The Radio Conference 2018: A Transnational Forum

The Monash University School of Media, Film and Journalism, in association with local and international committees and the MeCCSA Radio Studies Network, is pleased to host the 9th Radio Conference: A Transnational Forum in Prato, Italy, 10-13 July 2018. This prestigious international event will bring together radio and audio scholars and practitioners from across disciplines and continents.

The conference takes inspiration from its location in Italy and the Libertà d’antenna ‘Free Radio’ movement of the 1970s through which civil society and commercial organisations pushed for greater access to the media and forced an end to the state’s broadcasting monopoly. At the height of the movement, in mid-1978, more than 2000 independent radio stations were on air, making Italy the world leader in stations per capita. The movement not only freed up the Italian broadcasting landscape so new voices from across the political spectrum could be heard, but some stations also actively sought to break radio free from its established aesthetic through experiments in production technology, style and form.
