Writing and Inquiry
Writing and Research
Jeremy Lakoff's research explores the early decades of broadcasting and its intersections with modern literature, especially in representations of noise, studio spaces and professional culture. When teaching, he draws on this background to get students writing about new media, music, podcasts and auditory experience.
Using a range of archival materials held by the British Broadcasting Corporation (including memos, minutes, scripts and personnel files), Lakoff is working on a book project, Self-Portraits of the Broadcasting House, about the professional and literary culture of the BBC between 1922 and 1955. He is looking at how the concept of the studio, as a collaborative site of creative work, emerged through debates and negotiations that happened both in back hallways and on the air.
Lakoff has previously published peer-reviewed essays and chapters in The Conradian, Virginia Woolf Miscellany, Science, Technology, and Irish Modernism (Syracuse, 2019), and Radio Art and Music: Culture, Aesthetics, Politics (Lexington, 2020). In recent years he has given presentations at conferences like the Modernist Studies Association, the Modern Language Association and regional meetings of the American Conference for Irish Studies.
