broadcastellan: All blog entries

broadcastellan: List of blog entries 2005-present

I started broadcastellan at the height of the blogging phenomenon back in 2005.  I had not long moved from Manhattan to rural Wales and needed to make a home for myself at a time when my surroundings were strange to me and little I knew or cared for could be readily applied to my dramatically changed everyday.

So, I kept on writing what I had explored in my doctoral study, “Etherized Victorians,” albeit in an increasingly diaristic, less academic style.  As the title of the blog is meant to suggest, I imagined myself as a keeper of old recordings, a curator looking after the neglected heritage of radio culture.

Although broadcastellan never quite found an audience, writing it helped me get through a period of disorientation that it did little to shorten.  After relocating from country to town and returning to teaching, I had less time and need for such an outlet.  Meanwhile, my radio study was published in 2013 under the title Immaterial Culture.  Still, I continue broadcastellan to this day.  In August 2020, I migrated the content from Blogger to WordPress in hopes that some of the older entries, which search engines no longer found, would be come accessible again.

This is a list of all 791 entries in the journal (2005 to present). To read, follow the links below.
