Profile

Alexander (Alec) Badenoch (1971) is Lecturer in Media and Cultural studies at the University of Utrecht where he was the leading researcher on the HERA-project “ Transnational Radio Encounters (TRE)” 2013-2016.  He has a BA from the University of the South (1993), an MA in Social Science from the University of Chicago (1995) and a PhD in Modern Languages from the University of Southampton (2004). He is author of Voices in Ruins: West German Radio across the 1945 Divide (winner,2007-8 IAMHIST Prize), and was chief editor of the Inventing Europe Digital Museum (www.inventingeurope.eu).  He is vice-president of the Studienkreis Rundfunk und Geschichte (German broadcasting History Society) and co-founder of the Women’s Radio in Europe  (WREN) and Transmitting and Receiving Europe (TRANS) research networks. His research covers a range of topics in 20th Century national (German) and transnational history, and draws on disciplines ranging from media and cultural studies, cultural geography, gender studies, and history of technology.  

Badenoch's research falls into three key strands, each of which are strongly represented in TRE

 

  • Broadcasting and (trans)national identities. As the leading media of the 20th century, radio and television have simultaneously consolidated ideas of national belonging and provided access to imagined global spheres.    Radio and television are approached less as objects of study in themselves than as privileged pathways into broader social questions and intermedial entanglements.
  • Infrastructures, territories and transnational mobility, focusing on the way the building of networks both envisages and enables forms of mobility in European spaces. What are the technologies, insitutions and discourses that allows things, people and ideas to circulate, and how are they mediated?  This also includes alternative or counter-spaces, such as the offshore broadcasters in the North Sea, and the squatted spaces in Amsterdam and their key links to the rise of internet culture there.
  • Digital heritage and networked constructions of the past  Building on experiences editing an online virtual exhibit, as well as the growing question of audiovisual archives, this strand of research focuses on the problems and possibilities of networking heritage in the age of aggregation and convergence.
