CfP: Radio beyond Boundaries. Themed issue of 'The Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television'

Radio – like broadcasting in general – has always been quintessentially shaped by specific regions or nation states. Most radio services and channels, in fact, not only explicitly refer to a geolocation through their names, but also their remit is more often than not linked to a particular country, a region or a city. Whereas Hollywood cinema and other forms of media could be characterised by their global aspiration and appeal, radio seems rather limited in its impact beyond borders. Wherever we are from, little do we know about other countries’ or regions’ radio cultures.

VIEW Journal Call for Papers on "Using Television’s Material Heritage"

The medium of television is responsible for a huge accumulation of redundant objects: old TV sets and VTRs (and the tables to put them on), superseded production equipment and software, videotape and film that is no longer useable. This raises various questions, from practical to historiographical and methodological ones.
