Necsus - European Journal of Media Studies 2012-06-20


Use the link to access the new open access, peer reviewed journal NECSUS, including the current issue, themes for upcoming issues, and calls for papers. The journal is described as follows: “NECSUS is an international, peer-reviewed journal of media studies connected to NECS (European Network for Cinema and Media Studies) and published by Amsterdam University Press. The journal is multidisciplinary and strives to bring together the best work in the field of media studies across the humanities and social sciences. We aim to publish research that matters and that improves the understanding of media and culture inside and outside the academic community. Each volume will feature an open section for diverse contributions, a special thematic section, and a reviews section that will cover books, conferences, festivals, and exhibits. NECSUS is targeted to a broad readership of researchers, lecturers, and students, and will be offered as a biannual open access, online journal. Our inaugural volume will be published in spring 2012 with a special thematic focus on ‘crisis’. NECSUS focuses on cinema, television, and new media studies by publishing research either by European scholars or on European media, for a global readership. The journal particularly welcomes comparative and pan-European studies. We invite submissions on all aspects of media including textual, representational, and cinema-philosophical issues. Manuscripts may also cover media production and institutions as well as media technologies, networks, audiences, and uses. These aspects may be studied separately or in conjunction and situated in their cultural and historical contexts. We welcome contributions from different research traditions including but not limited to cinema and television studies, cultural studies, communication studies, game studies, network studies, and media history...”
