Subproject 1

Subproject 1 explores the histories of radio collections in Europe, yet it focuses on historical recordings held today in Western Europe (former West Germany, BeNeLux region and France). Considering how these collections were created from the 1930s onwards, it seeks to trace how and why institutions (and social actors) archived and used these collections, and take into account the effects of war, military occupation and reconstruction.
