Tracking Radio Archival Collections in Europe, 1930-1960

The TRACE project studies radio archival collections in Europe during and after World War II. It examines the processes by which these collections were created, archived, circulated and used. Focusing on radio collections in Western and Central/Eastern Europe, the project combines insights from archival studies, heritage studies and media history, and contextualises collections that were affected by conditions of war and occupation as well as the post-war division of a Cold War Europe and influence of Communism.
