Seeing, Selling, and Situating Radio in Canada, 1922-1956

SERIES: Canadian Modern
Dalhousie Architectural Press
Seeing, Selling, and Situating Radio in Canada, 1922-1956 examines the visual, material, and spatial presence of radio as it reshaped Canadian society in the second quarter of the twentieth century. Through an analysis of radio sets and advertisements, the authors explain how marketing and design were crucial to convincing Canadians to adopt this modern technology. They also discuss how new kinds of spaces were produced by radio, by tracing its intersecting networks of communication and commercialism, public and private places, material and imagined sites. Contains a series foreword by Michelangelo Sabatino and an introduction by Christine Macy.
