Call for Papers: This issue of Mediascape will focus on film technology.

For this section, we are seeking papers that not only discuss the effects of media texts due to the alteration of media tools, but also media tools in and of themselves. We’ll be considering themes such as screens (scope, size, experience), digital technology and the images’ texture variety, and how labor changes in the industry due to technological changes in the fields of cinema, television and digital media. Consider, for instance, digital waste; where do our broken screens, cameras and other hardware for viewing entertainment go? Where do they come from? (Think about digital waste images found in Manufactured Landscapes by Jennifer Baichwal.) Submissions may include other themes, and they are not limited to the above. In general, however, we are seeking papers that discuss film technology to some extent.

 Please submit CFPs or any other questions to the Co-Editor, Grace Jung at aechjay@g.ucla.edu; only Microsoft Word documents are accepted; submission must adhere to the Chicago Manual Style format. Word count including all endnotes is limited to 8,000.
