Monday, 5 August 2019 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

In a time of increased xenophobia, stopping the boats, and more overt and vocal racism, what’s the role of community based multicultural broadcasting in Australia? Susan Forde is professor of journalism at Griffith University and the director of that university’s Centre for Social and Cultural Research. In the middle of doing in-depth research into the ways that ethnic community radio plays a key part in meeting and servicing the needs of diverse migrant and refugee communities all across the country, in this edition of Communication Mixdown, she takes up some of the answers to that question.

Monday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
