Transnational Radio Encounters (TRE) is a research project on the influence of radio on transnational forms of culture an identity. TRE investigates:
- how radio infrastructures help structure public and counter-public spheres,
- the intersections between auditory expression and feelings of belonging evoked by radio
- how and where transnational encounters in and through radio have been archived and re-circulated, and how broadcasting archives have been used in transnational radio encounters.
One of the outcomes of the project is the interactive website Radio Garden, where visitors can listen to radio stations and historical radio broadcasts from across the globe.
Transnational Radio Encounters is financially supported by the HERA Joint Research Programme.
