Broadcasting Diversity : Migrant Representation in Irish Radio Hardback


This title interrogates the representation of 'diversity' in public service and community broadcasting.

It explores the role and functions of community radio.

It investigates migrant self-representation in radio.

It analyses Irish public and popular culture in the 'Celtic Tiger' and its aftermath.

It problematizes discourses of multiculturalism. "Broadcasting Diversity" explores modes of migrant representation and participation in Irish radio, focusing on the national public broadcaster Raidio Telefis Eireann (RTE) and Dublin community stations and examining the opportunities provided for voicing migrant experience in transcultural program production.

Investigating the intersection between an established Irish culture on the one hand and the nascent emergence of a transnational culture on the other, this book focuses on the ways in which migrant representation and self representation have been variously effected in the Irish public sphere via the medium of radio.
