>What is Media History?
>(Volume 4, Issue 3) Autumn, 2007

>Over the past three decades the study of media history has emerged from the
>academic shadows into an interdisciplinary limelight. No longer the sole
>preserve of subaltern scholars in the fields of history, literary or media
>studies, the subject has grown in importance and in scope encompassing a
>wide range of genres across a variety of media forms.  As the discipline of
>media studies increasingly discovers its historical hinterland, so too
>historians have come to view the media as much more than simply useful
>primary sources, but rather as fundamental actors in the historical process
>and thus worthy of study in their own right.
>
>The rise of new media technologies has led to claims of an unprecedented
>democratisation of the study and recording of the past, while the
>relationship between the mass media and historical representations, whether
>fictionalised or factual, is one that often engenders controversial debate
>in both the film and broadcasting industries. Moreover, in an era of media
>globalisation there are questions to be asked about how academics approach
>the study of the historical development of communications that moves beyond
>national boundaries to engage with global and comparative accounts.
>
>As a consequence Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture invites
>submissions from a wide range of backgrounds that operate in or seek to
>problematise the study of media history and the numerous ways in which it
>is approached.  In addition to theoretical reflections we especially
>encourage original empirical research that highlights
>epistemological/methodological issues whilst engaging with actual
>historical experience.
>
