Description
The media play a key role in post-apartheid South Africa and is often positioned at the centre of debates around politics, identity and culture. Media, such as radio, are often said to also play a role in deepening democracy, while simultaneously holding the power to frame political events, shape public discourse and impact citizens‚Äô perceptions of reality. Broadcasting Democracy: Radio and Identity in South Africa provides an exciting look into the diverse world of South African radio, exploring how various radio formats and stations play a role in constructing post-apartheid identities. At the centre of the book is the argument that various types of radio stations represent autonomous systems of cultural activity, and are ‚Äėconsumed‚Äô as such by listeners. In this sense, it argues that South African radio is ‚Äėbroadcasting democracy‚Äô. Broadcasting Democracy will be of interest to media scholars and radio listeners alike.
