[ecrea] call for articles : Cinematograph for industries and in companies (1890 - 1970)

Sat Jul 14 11:08:59 GMT 2018

Cinematograph for industries and in companies (1890-1970): history, players, uses and configurations

This special issue of /Cahiers d’histoire du Cnam/ looks at gathering contributions on industrial and business uses of cinema, from strategical choices such as widening the activities of firms (Antoine Lumière and sons’ “Society for photographic plates and papers”/Société de plaques et papiers photographiques), and industrializing sound recording (Pathé brothers company in the 1890s) or optical and photographic materials (L. Gaumont company in 1895), to transformations brought by the generalization of television then video in the 1970s. It aims at exploring ways in which industry and companies have used the cinematograph, as well as modes of organization and production this uses have generated.

Scholars studying from the perspective of cultural history, history of technology, history of economy, media and communication (non-exhaustive list) are welcome. Although the call is mostly rooted in French history, international perspectives are very welcome as well.

Proposals should be submitted until October 22nd to (chcnam_cinema /at/ <mailto:(chcnam_cinema /at/>. Full articles are expected by January 19th, 2019. The issue is set to be released in Fall 2019.
