International Journal of Fim and Media Arts (IJFMA)

IJFMA is preparing a special issue titled ‘Flow and Archive’ dedicated to Television
and to its current challenges
The digital turn has allowed television to be reimagined after the networked
computers. Following the telephone and radio, the new paradigm inspiring the
future of television are the networked computers, their social networks and the participatory visual culture established on the aftermath of the twentieth century cultural industries. After the liveness and flow, definitional components of television, we are currently offered with DVR-mediated television experiences and collections
of short videos which can be uploaded, viewed and shared by the viewer. By
becoming searchable and accessible online, television provides a similar
experience to the archives and to the video aggregators that entertain the new generations of cellphone viewers. The discussion about the future of television not only makes it worth thinking about its past, the cultural value of its equipments and
its most resilient genres, but is certainly an opportunity to analyse how TV
journalism is challenged by social networks, and how its public service can be
IJFMA welcomes papers addressing one or more of the following themes:
Early and current screen practices;
TV superseded equipments as material and cultural heritage;
TV and media participatory turn;
TV and transmedia industries;
Old and resilient TV genres;
Flow versus archive as a television challenge;
Memory and the obsolete in online video collections;
Social networks and other new challenges to public service broadcasting;

Contributions are encouraged from authors with different kinds of expertise and
interests in media studies, television and media history.
Abstracts should have between 250-300 words and should be submitted until 15
April 2019
