[ecrea] CFP - Themed Issue of MIA on 'Inclusion, exclusion, and Australian TV History'

Wed Oct 03 05:30:07 GMT 2018


*“Inclusion, exclusion, and Australian television history”*

*Themed issue of Media International Australia*

Edited by Dr Kyle Harvey (University of Tasmania) and Dr Sukhmani Khorana,

(University of Wollongong)

Abstracts are sought for a themed issue of /Media International Australia/ from historians,

screen studies scholars, sociologists, and scholars of broadcasting, gender, ethnicity, and

the culture industries. This themed issue aims to bring together new research on the

relationship between minorities, marginalised groups, and television in Australian history.

The editors seek to explore the issue of social inclusion by interrogating histories of

diversity, of exclusion and oppression, and of struggles for representation, fair pay, and

recognition both on and off screen. We are also interested in broader aspects of

inclusivity and the Australian television industry, in histories of technological change,

language, and policy since the advent of television since 1956. What have these histories

meant for those working in the industry? What have they meant for TV viewers? How

do they fit within the history of Australian television as an industry operating in an

increasingly diverse and fragmented global media marketplace? And what do these

histories mean for employers, for consumers and viewers, and for TV professionals

working in the industry today?

We seek papers covering institutional histories, studies of broadcasting practice, and

studies of individuals and communities involved in the production of television and its

reception. The policy frameworks governing television broadcasting and its audiences

over the last sixty years are also of interest. We are equally interested in new work on

representation from the history of Australian TV, its contemporary significance, and its

transnational aspects.


Abstracts (max 300 words) and brief bio due by 16 November 2018.
