In her study of key serialized radio dramas broadcast from 1930 to 1943, Rea analyses the work of leading exponents of the genre against the wider backdrop of nation-building, intellectual movements and popular culture in Argentina. Grounded in archival work undertaken at the library of Argentores in Buenos Aires, Rea’s book recovers the contribution that these products of popular culture made to the nation-building project as they helped to shape current understanding of Argentine history and cultural identity.
