Abstract

Defining prisoners' radio programming is no easy task. The most important element to note is that programming broadcasts outside of prison. Prison radio does exist inside prison confines; however, this research focuses on programs that broadcast to the wider community, as it is this connection to the "outside world" that strengthens the empowering nature of prisoners' engagement in media production. This article connects prisoners' radio production with notions of active citizenship. While the concept of citizenship is highly relevant to alternative media practice, the issues are compounded when we consider prisoners because of their tenuous position as citizens.
