The conference was attended by around fifty participants from richly diverse areas of expertise including practice-based research and the historical study of architecture, broadcasting, classics, drama, imperialism, literature, modernism, musicology, radio, sound, television and transnationalism. The conference was held at the ten-year point since the 2006 publication of Todd Avery’s landmark book Radio Modernism: Literature, Ethics, and the BBC, 1922-1938. Radio Drama, edited by Peter Lewis, focused less on individual auteurs, with contributors bringing a more generic, theoretical or practice-based lens to the topic of drama, fiction and features. Features may look, on the face of it, like documentaries, radio plays, radiophonic engagement with modernist poetry, wartime propaganda pieces, travelogues, social history, journalism, etc, but their modes of communication are protean. Radio in itself is multiply expressive of many modernities that can be examined through a number of lenses which relate to perceptions and experiences of individual and collective identities.
