Please submit by August 15, 2010

This special issue pays overdue attention to the space of the video store as a site of inquiry for media and cultural studies.

We seek a wide range of works (medium–length essays of 1500–2500 words, digital art projects, audio/video interviews) that explore the significance of video stores — how they have (or have not) figured in film and media cultures, histories, and theories. In short this issue of Media Fields seeks contributions that write the video store into film and media studies.
