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.
