Dr. Paul Rekret, Associate Professor of International Politics, hosts a weekly radio essay on popular music and politics on Resonance.Extra – first episode (‘Work It! Capitalism, Labour, Dance’).
Beholder Halfway investigates the intersections of politics and popular music. Grounded in the belief that popular music bears the affective imprint of its social conditions, each episode seeks to critically examine how particular social and political events and anxieties echo in popular music.
The show seeks to think critically about the social and political context of the music’s production and consumption.
