Special Issue of The Global South: “Radio Cultures of the Global South”

The Global South journal
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

This special issue of The Global South asks how the rise and persistent relevance of radio has shaped and been shaped by the cultures of the Global South over the past century and more. What art forms, social practices, political movements, and linguistic effects emerged through the radio speakers of the Global South? How have creators and consumers harnessed this medium and its expressive possibilities? What roles has radio played in the broader cultural histories of the Global South? Here, the “Global South” is used as a flexible descriptor that names not only nations and lands of the southern hemisphere, but other regions radically affected by the pressures of imperialism, globalization, and unequal development.

From ancient gladiators battling to the death in front of cheering crowds to the modern-day journalistic maxim that ‘if it bleeds, it leads’, violence has occupied a prominent place in the human imagination. It is common to see animals in the wild fighting to establish dominance and eliminate potential predators. But when humans engage in similar behaviour, it raises a host of questions about the nature and implications of violence. Why has our capacity for reason, compassion and empathy been insufficient to circumvent our primal urge to use physical force to cause injury, death or other forms of harm? Why has violence exerted an irresistible hold on the human psyche throughout history?
