Journalism Lab II: Radio and audio communication [410236]

Aggeliki Gazi


This workshop will focus on the presentation of sound as a complex point of communication, a representational object of intertwining of the individual and society. Specifically, sound will be studied as the primary "interface" between the individual and the environment, as a path of interaction of the individual, society and the environment.

Psychosociological theories about the individual and listening, issues related to sound culture, acoustic communication and acoustic ecology will be discussed and a focus will be placed on exploring the term soundscape both theoretically and through an experimental approach.

Through this course students have the opportunity to expand his/her knowledge regarding the specific characteristics, codes and content of the radio medium. Students can understand the way new media are changing the traditional forms of communication. The understanding and analysis of the medium codes through the psychosocial approach indicates a structural approach to the radio. Through this approach the specific medium codes are forming concrete results in the use, uptake and impact of the message.  Through laboratory courses, which will accompany the theory, students will be trained on issues related to digital audio technology. Thus, a comprehensive understanding of the nature of the radio will be gained and an understanding of the way audio content should be composed and presented, based on a psychosocial approach, will be promoted.
