Technologies of Media History
Reviews section of MEDIASCAPE - Call for Papers

For the upcoming issue of MEDIASCAPE, Reviews is seeking submissions that investigate how various technologies of media enable history to be read, constructed, interfaced with, interfered with, or disseminated. The history of the moving image is dependent on the technologies used to facilitate a dialogue amongst the audience, the text, and the extra-text. Digital Media artists and their audiences have experienced significant technological shifts in the multi-faceted medium with which they engage, leading to novel styles and new spaces of representing history. Complicating the ways in which history is (re)recorded and (re)created by “older” media technologies, film is now a ubiquitous medium, one that permeates our everyday consciousness while persistently forging its own historical account. In general, the history of how media has evolved to its present forms is rich and varied. This history is intimately connected with the conversations between consumers and creators, and also dependent on the technologies of production, distribution, and exhibition.

History of Media, History Through Media
Columns section of MEDIASCAPE - Call for Papers

The intersection of history and media has created a multiplicity of complex discourses. For this issue of MEDIASCAPE, Columns is seeking submissions that address the difficulty—and perhaps improbability—of adequately creating history through media or creating a history of media. Of particular interest is research that comments on the myth-making power of mediated history in film, television, and new media.

History and Digital Media

META section of MEDIASCAPE - Call for Papers

Creators of digital media products have significantly altered methods of film production, distribution and exhibition over the last decade, which has in turn effectively reshaped academic approaches to film studies. Scholars who once examined the medium of “film” rather narrowly, as predominantly text-based, now face with the advent of new technologies a radically transformed field. Through this process, the archive has undergone substantial changes as well. Film has become a ubiquitous medium, readily accessible for both professionals and amateurs. How has the progression of digital media technologies shaped the role of history in film and media studies?
