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. Papers should be short (800-1500 words, in MLA format) on the role of history in the larger critical context.
