Entangled Media Histories seminar in Lund

September 30, 2014

So the end of this last week I was on the road again for the first time in a while.  It began with a trip to visit the Department of Media and Communication at Lund Unversity, specifically the Media History group, where I was invited to give a seminar in their seminar on Cold War history.  Lund is one of three partners in the Entangled Media Project (together with Centre for Media History at Bournemouth Unversity and  Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research, Research Centre for the History of Broadcasting in Northern Germany, Hamburg) that explores transnational entanglements in media history.

In short, my kinda folks.

I got to share a platform with Marie Cronqvist who was presenting exciting new research on the television exchanges between Sweden and the German Democratic Republic during the Cold War.  My talk “Translating women: the entangled networks of radio and women between Cold War, decolonization and development” drew on the research I have been doing with Kristin Skoog on the Cold War entanglements of the International Association of Women in Radio and Television, with some speculation on how to take this forward in liaison with my current work on international broadcasting. A short report on the seminar, which does not do justice to the cordial atmosphere, is here.
