>[apologies for any cross-posting]
>**Reminder: Abstracts due 1 May 2007**
>Call For Papers: 'Media International Australia' Issue no. 126, Feb 2008
>'Beyond Broadcasting: TV for the Twenty-First Century'
>Theme Editors: Graham Meikle and Sherman Young
>The broadcast era is over. The twentieth-century broadcast model of
>centralised, one-way transmission of pre-packaged content to large,
>simultaneous audiences is increasingly challenged and complemented by newer
>approaches. Content, distribution channels, geographical constraints,
>production values, business models, regulatory approaches and cultural
>habits are changing as the new media technologies empower users in
>unexpected ways and increasingly recast TV as something that audiences
>create as well as watch. Cheap hardware and software allow anyone to produce
>original or Rmashed-up¹ videos. The ubiquity of camera-phones and CCTV
>redefines reality television. Higher-quality resources bring near-broadcast
>quality to video blogs and citizen journalism. Affordable editing resources
>allow creative re-mixes of low-brow soap-operas. And sites such as YouTube
>demonstrate the online demand for such non-traditional video productions.
>Such media forms are unlikely to replace television as we know it. But they
>will displace it. This issue of 'Media International Australia' invites
>contributions that are able to push forward our thinking about television.
>The following gives some indication of the range of possible topics, but is
>not intended to rule out other questions.
>* What is television in the twenty-first century? Should our definition of
>television change? If television is considered a cultural habit, what new
>habits are emerging?
>* Does television require an *industry*? How are audiences reinventing
>themselves as producers?
>* What are the relationships between free to air, pay TV, public
>broadcasting and emerging new formats?
>* What are the impacts of new distribution models, both legal and illegal?
>* What impacts do the new technologies and habits have on traditional
>institutions, policies and regulatory frameworks?
>Papers should be approximately 4-5000 words and comply with the MIA style
>guide, available at <>. Further
>information is available from Dr Graham Meikle <(graham.meikle /at/> or
>Dr Sherman Young <(sherman.young /at/>.
>Abstracts should be sent to the theme editors by 1 May  2007.
>Following proposal assessments, papers for refereeing will be required by 1
>August 2007, with any revisions to be completed by 15 November 2007 for
>publication in February 2008.
>About the journal:
>Media International Australia (MIA) publishes new scholarly and applied
>research on the media, telecommunications, and the cultural industries,
>and the policy regimes within which they operate
>MIA was founded by Professor Henry Mayer in 1976. It was published by
>the Australian Film, Television and Radio School until 1997, when it
>moved to the Centre for Cultural and Media Policy at Griffith
>University. At that time, it was merged with the Centre's journal,
>Culture and Policy. From 2004, it became a publication of the School of
>EMSAH and the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies, at The
>University of Queensland. In 2005 the Henry Mayer Lecture was
>established in memory of the journal's founder.
>Broadly inclusive and inter-disciplinary, the journal welcomes the
>writing of history, theory and analysis, commentary and debate. While
>its primary focus is Australia, the journal also aims to provide an
>international perspective.
