The renewed attention to the media of literature has spurred a
resurgent interest in radio. This seminar will continue this project,
with special attention to the uses of radio in varied historical,
geographical, and cultural contexts. Questions might include: Is radio
always local? What happens to "voice" on the radio? How has state
control of radio affected the broadcasting of literature? How did
audiences hear radio? How did access to radio change the genres of
philosophical, literary, or dramatic writing, or alter the contours of
a particular career?

These questions are meant as possibilities, not limitations. Ideally,
this seminar will represent a variety of approaches to radio in a
range of contexts.
