Critical Waves on Resonance104.4FM 23rd and 30th June

Tune in to Resonance 104.4FM on Tuesday 23rd and Tuesday 30th June, 8-9pm to hear cutting-edge research from the brightest new talent in the arts and humanities.

Listen in to be inspired and intrigued by thinking off the beaten track, as researchers from across the UK explore; three-sided football, haunted mirrors, the cost of thinking, black women in space, the psychogeography of a ‘bike cemetery’, fiduciary law, the world of nocturnal music, the sound of climate change, and what happens when we analyse poetry according to Jeremy Paxman.

You can tune in at 104.4FM in London or online here

The programmes are the result of Critical Waves, an innovative series of talks and events, delivered by Birkbeck College in partnership with the ICA and Resonance 104.FM.

During spring 2015 Critical Waves brought together leading artists, academics and broadcasters for a series of talks and workshops aimed at exploring the role of radio in academic research. In response to these events postgraduate research students and early career researchers have produced short radio programmes on elements of their work. A selection of these programmes will be showcased during the broadcasts on Resonance 104.4FM in June, but you can find even more online where a complete archive of all the programmes made by Critical Waves’ participants will be available at
