Emma Hart

Meet the new CBAA Women's Representative, Emma Hart!

Holly Friedlander Liddicoat, 22nd November 2017

Feminist organising has defined Emma's experiences in community broadcasting.

Emma began making radio in 2014 on 3CR Community Radio's Tuesday Breakfast Current Affairs Show, a show produced and presented solely by women and gender non-conforming people.

While balancing radio with a job upholding workers’ rights and her commitments as an active musician, Emma fell in love with community radio as a vibrant and resilient media form where communities control their own stories.

She now works as Interviews Coordinator at PBS106.7FM, and serves as a Director on 3CR’s Committee of Management. She delivers radio training at 3CR and is a producer for Women on the Line, a national feminist current affairs show which has been broadcasting from 3CR since 1986.

Emma is also a producer for Sweet Dreams, a weekly DIY music show on 3CR which focuses on the music of women, gender non-conforming and queer people, and looks forward to bringing her experience pushing for fair representation in a community radio context to her new role.

Welcome Emma!

Australian queer (GLBTIQ) university student activist media is an important site of self-representation. Community media is a significant site for the development of queer identity, community and a key part of queer politics. This paper reviews my research into queer student media, which is grounded in a queer theoretical perspective. Rob Cover argues that queer theoretical approaches that study media products fail to consider the material contexts that contribute to their construction. I use an ethnographic approach to examine how editors construct queer identity and community in queer student media. My research contributes to queer media scholarship by addressing the gap that Cover identifies, and to the rich scholarship on negotiations of queer community.
