The Secret Life of Radio: Fringe Practices (Fall 2019)
This course examines selected case studies of marginal and fringe practices of radio broadcasting across its history. The aim of the course is to defamiliarize the norms of radio broadcasting and reimagine it as a form of creative, political, and social practice. Prominent experts, scholars, and practitioners visit the course.
The Franke Seminars and Lectures in the Humanities are intended to present important topics in the humanities to a wide and general audience, and to tie interdisciplinary undergraduate education to the work of distinguished visiting scholars. Made possible through the generosity of Richard and Barbara Franke, this series of lectures is organized in conjunction with Yale College courses (the Franke Seminars) and develops an annual theme of broad interest to the community.
