Part two of Critical Waves on Resonance

Last week we got off to a flying start with our first broadcast on Resonance104.4FM. Elizabeth Cetin and Rebecca Wright hosted features made by six participants from the Critical Waves events earlier this year. Lisa Mullen took us through the looking glass to explore the uncanny qualities of mirrors; Jono Gilmurray let us listen in to the sound of climate change; Arthur Keegen-Bole studied the role of radio in the music of the night; Becky Cullen considered what happens when we try to analyse poetry according to the criticisms of broadcaster and judge of the 2015 Forward Prize for Poetry, Jeremy Paxman; Aimee Gaston explored the significance of Virginia Woolf’s armchair; and Tom Wright took us inside a volcano.

Don’t worry if you missed it, you can catch it again on Resonance FM’s Mixcloud here.

Tonight, Elizabeth Cetin will return, this time accompanied by Claudia Firth, to guide you through our second and final installment in Critical Waves. Christopher Collier offers a glimpse into the beautiful game of three-sided football; Sonya Dyer considers the visual history of black women in space; Robert Herian brings alive the concept of fiduciary law; Robin Bale takes us on a tour of a disused space known only as the ‘bike cemetery’; Naomi Wynter-Vincent, examines the cost of thinking in an account of the work of psychoanalyst Wilfred Bion; Sarah Jackson examines the role of telephony in fiction; and Rachel Cattle offers an experimental work on women’s suffrage.

To catch all this tune in from 8-9pm tonight, Tuesday 30th June, on Resonance104.4FM.


Tune in to hear Critical Waves on Resonance

We are delighted to announce that two Critical Waves programmes will be broadcast on Resonance 104.4FM on Tuesday 23rd and Tuesday 30th June, 8-9pm.

The Resonance broadcasts will feature a selection of short programmes made by researchers who participated in the Critical Waves events, showcasing cutting-edge research from some of the brightest new talent in the arts and humanities.

Listen in to be inspired and intrigued by thinking off the beaten track, as researchers from across the UK explore; three-sided football, haunted mirrors, the cost of thinking, black women in space, the psychogeography of a bike cemetery, fiduciary law, the world of nocturnal music, the sound of climate change, and what happens when we analyse poetry according to Jeremy Paxman.

In the meantime, why not take a look at my article for the ICA blog, ‘Voices of Dissent: DIY Radio in the 21st Century’, which written in response to the ICA’s current exhibition Shout Out! UK Pirate Radio in the 1980s, and discusses some of the issues raised at the recent Critical Waves events.

And, if you’re a researcher thinking about what it’s like to make your own podcast, researcher from Royal Holloway, Laura Wood offers an account of her first time podcasting on her blog ‘Keeping it Eclectic’.
