The Radio Studies Network became a MeCCSA Network in January 2010.
It was originally founded in December 1998 by lecturers and researchers to encourage sustained, lively and critical study and research in radio, and seek ways to improve its academic and cultural status.
Whatever aspect of radio you are interested in, or whatever discipline governs your approach, you are welcome to join.
The MeCCSA Radio Studies Network encourages interested colleagues to subscribe to the Radio Studies list, a forum for teachers, researchers and broadcasters active since 1998.
The network has also a Facebook page and encourages you to join the discussion there.
