NEWS – launch of new open access e-journal

Journal of European Television History and Culture

The EUscreen* project releases the first peer-reviewed, multi-media and open access e-journal in the field of European television history and culture. The aim of this e-journal, Journal of European Television History and Culture, is to provide an international platform for outstanding research and reflection on television as an important part of our European cultural heritage. The journal builds on recent digitisation initiatives in European archives and audiovisual libraries and addresses the need for critical study of the cultural, social and political role of television in Europe’s past and presence with the help of television material that has now become available on a large scale.

The journal is the result of a cooperation between the EUscreen platform and researchers from the European Television History Network, which was launched in 2004 to promote a transnational perspective on the history and culture of television in Europe. It is published by the Utrecht University Library in collaboration with Utrecht University, Maastricht University and Royal Holloway College, University of London and will be continued with funding from the Dutch National Research Board.

EUscreen started in October 2009 as a three-year project, funded by the European Commission’s eContentplus programme. Over the project’s duration more than 30,000 items representing Europe’s television heritage (videos, photographs, articles) will be made available online through a freely accessible multilingual portal.
