Film Studies For Free is delighted to announce that EUscreen has presented issue 03 of VIEW, the Journal of European Television History and Culture.

The new issue treats the subject of 'European Television Memories', and it's full of wonderful discussions of 'dynamic memory practices that take place in the contemporary media landscape as an ongoing, active and performative engagement with the past', as the issue's editorial puts it. Such discussions are highly relevant to film scholars, too.

The full table of contents is given below, with FSFF's congratulations to VIEW on an excellent issue.

VIEW is published by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in collaboration with Utrecht University, Maastricht University and Royal Holloway University of London. It is supported by the EUscreenXL project, the European Television History Network and the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research.
VIEW, the Journal of European Television History and Culture is the first peer-reviewed, multi-media and open access e-journal in the field of European television history and culture.
