Besides our regular special theme-focused issues, VIEW Journal accepts article proposals on a rolling basis. We encourage scholars and audiovisual archivists to use this Open Call to provide suggestions for articles and audiovisual essays, as well as other forms of reflective thought.
VIEW Journal of European Television History and Culture is the first peer-reviewed, multi-media and open access e-journal in the field of European television history and culture. It offers an international platform for outstanding academic research and archival reflection on television as an important part of our European cultural heritage. The journal is open to many disciplinary perspectives on European television – including television history, media studies, media sociology, cultural studies and television studies. The journal acts both as a platform for critical reflection on the cultural, social and political role of television in Europe’s past and presence and as a multi-media platform for the presentation and re-use of digitized audiovisual material.
For our forthcoming open issue (publication date Spring 2021), co-edited by Mari Pajala and Liam Wylie, we invite both creative article ideas in the form of extended proposals and full articles for peer review.
In bridging the gap between academic and archival concerns for television and in analyzing the political and cultural importance of television in a transnational and European perspective, the journal aims at establishing an innovative platform for the critical interpretation and creative use of digitized audio-visual sources. In doing so, it challenges a long tradition of television research that was – and to a huge amount still is – based on the analysis of written sources.
The journal aims at stimulating new narrative forms of online storytelling, making use of the rich digitized audiovisual collections of television archives around Europe. All articles in the journal must make use of audio-visual sources that will have to be embedded in the narrative: not as “illustrations” of an historical or theoretical argumentation, but as problematized evidence of a research question.
VIEW Journal of European Television History and Culture addresses the scientific community as well as a larger audience interested in television as a cultural phenomenon. Broadcast historians, media studies scholars, audiovisual archivists, television professionals as well as the large group of enthusiastic fans of “old” television will have the opportunity to dive into the history and presence of European television by means of multi-media texts.
If you have questions about the process, do not hesitate to get in touch with Journal Manager Rieke Böhling or co-editors Mari Pajala and Liam Wylie via the journal's main contact address: journal [at] euscreen.eu
