|From September Friday 2nd||History Week Speaker. |
The theme of History Week 2016 is Neighbours. In her presentation
Dr Jeannine Baker, an historian and documentary maker, will use the example of West Australian broadcaster and feminist Irene Greenwood who launched a new radio program on commercial radio called 'Woman to Woman'. Rather than treating her rural working-class audience as passive listeners Greenwood was determined to make 'a two-way business of broadcasting', and she utilised the power of radio to create an imagined community of women. Greenwood's ability to erase distance made her audience members feel connected, both to her and to the other women who were listening simultaneously. This talk demonstrates the ways that women listeners actively participated in broadcasting, and shaped programme content and style.
