What is prisoners’ radio? Who is involved in «creating» these types of programs and what influence do they have on discourses of law and order? Internationally, radio that operates for, or by, prisoners exists almost exclusively within the community radio context. Little has been documented about the genre so far.
Raising the Civil Dead seeks to address this lack of information. It examines prisoners’ radio as citizens’ media, connecting directly to notions of civic responsibility. It focuses on the ways in which people produce media and how these activities transform those individuals. The research is the result of four in-depth case studies conducted in two countries, complemented by an international inventory of prisoners’ radio programs and stations.
Theorising community radio – Participating in the public sphere – Prisoners, citizenship and the public sphere – A methodology for studying Prisoners’ Radio – An international inventory of Prisoners Radio – Four case studies from Australia and Canada – Prisoners radio as citizens’ media – Prisoners’ radio in the public sphere.
Heather Anderson completed her doctorate in 2008 and currently lectures in Media Studies, Journalism and Social Enterprise at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. She has been involved in the community radio sector since the early 1990’s, especially with Brisbane station, 4ZzZ.
