Journal of European Television History and Culture

The EUscreen project has released its first peer-reviewed, multi-media and open access e-journal in the field of European television history and culture. The aim of this e-journal, Journal of European Television History and Culture, is to provide an international platform for outstanding research and reflection on television as an important part of our European cultural heritage. The journal builds on recent digitisation initiatives in European archives and audiovisual libraries and addresses the need for critical study of the cultural, social and political role of television in Europe’s past and presence with the help of television material that has now become available on a large scale. The journal is the result of a cooperation between the EUscreen platform and researchers from the European Television History Network,which was launched in 2004 to promote a transnational perspective on the history and culture of television in Europe.
