Hooray! It's OUT. Film Studies For Free has been checking almost every day for a couple of months now because it knew that an amazing issue of Scope: an online journal of film and tv studies -- its TENTH anniversary issue -- was just about to be published. It's here now *Scope* # 15: an issue and an e-book -- see the contents links below -- and contains some fantastic items of film and media studies.
Congratulations to the whole editorial team at Scope, who do a fabulous job. These have been ten great years of remarkably high quality and FREELY ACCESSIBLE scholarly works. Thank you.
