CFP – “Digital History” — Features for MEDIASCAPE issue on “History and Technology in Cinema, Media, and Visual Culture"
full name / name of organization:
MEDIASCAPE, UCLA's Journal of Film, Television, and Digital Media
The digitization of culture writ large — and the archive in particular — necessitates a reevaluation of the study of both media history and mediated history. How does the transformation of the past into ones and zeroes affect our conception and study of history? Who owns and operates the digital archive? What is lost in the continual upgrade of technology?
MEDIASCAPE is seeking articles that explore new, neglected, or underdeveloped areas in the field of “Digital History” within all areas of media studies. Topics may included, but are not limited to:
• The effects of digital archives on the study of film and television history.
Feature submissions should offer a new and unique perspective on digital history in the field of film, television, and digital media, and are encouraged to address more than one area of moving image culture. Papers are accepted from both faculty and graduate students, and should be 15-25 pages in length, formatted with MLA endnote citations, and include a brief biography of the author. Please direct feature section questions, proposals, and submissions to Matthew Perkins at MatthewCPerkins@gmail.com by January 15th, 2012.
MEDIASCAPE, UCLA's online, open-access journal for film, television, and digital media, is now accepting submissions for its next issue. This next issue considers the theme of History and Technology in Cinema, Media and Visual Culture.
MEDIASCAPE is proud to publish high quality work that combines the cutting edge of critical and historical analysis with an impulse to explore the possibilities of digital publishing. We are eager to work closely with authors to publish high-quality work that embeds content, video essays, and/or interactive applications. Our journal also publishes traditional scholarly essays, but we encourage all authors to consider graphic and video aids.
MEDIASCAPE is peer-reviewed, published annually, and accessible online at http://www.tft.ucla.edu/mediascape. Andy Young and Andy Myers, Co-Editors-in-Chief, welcome your queries, comments, and suggestions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All submissions should follow MLA Style guidelines, employ endnote citations (not parenthetical citations), and comply with the following formatting requirements:
• No cover page, with title instead centered at the top of the first page of the article
Because of the peer review and editorial processes of the journal's different sections, it may take as long as eight to twelve weeks for decisions on submissions to reach the writers. General email inquiries can be sent to Mediascape@tft.ucla.edu.
