An Index to SCAN Journal of Media Arts Culture

Frame grab from All About My Mother (Pedro Almodóvar, 1999) from an image-essay by Ryland Walker Knight) - see also Fiona Jenkins' wonderful SCAN essay, Grief’s Testimony: On Almodóvar’s All About My Mother

It's Open Access Week this week, and while every Film Studies For Free blogpost brings you links to openly accessible Film and Media Studies resources, FSFF thought it was a good moment to celebrate one of the most consistently excellent OA e-journals, the Australia-based SCAN: Journal of Media Arts Culture. Below, then, is a complete and convenient one-stop index of live links to all the refereed articles on film and media that SCAN has published in its five and a half years of online existence.

FSFF's highlights are: the Film as Philosophy and Screenscapes Past Present Future special issues; the fantastic Cinematic Scriptwriting issue, edited by Kathryn Millard; Elizabeth A. Wilson's brilliant reflections on artificial intelligence; Justine Toh on Batman Begins; Christopher Hayton on Charlton Comics' Monster Movie Adaptations; Darrin Verhagen on audiovision; and Ahu Paköz on Persepolis.
