Dear all,

Contributions are welcome for Volume 2 of the *Journal of European
Television History and Culture*, which is the first peer-reviewed
multi-media e-journal in the field of television studies.

Offering an international platform for outstanding academic research on
television, the journal has an interdisciplinary profile and acts both as a
platform for critical reflection on the cultural, social and political role
of television in Europe’s past and present as well as a multi-media
platform for the circulation and use of digitized audiovisual material.

Our main aim is to function as a showcase for a creative and innovative use
of digitised television material in scholarly work. At the same time, the
journal intends to stimulate the fruitful discussion between audiovisual
heritage institutions (especially television archives) and a broader
community of television experts and amateurs. In offering a unique
technical infrastructure for a multi-media presentation of critical
reflections on European television, the journal aims at stimulating
innovative narrative forms of online storytelling, making use of the
digitized audiovisual collections of television archives around Europe.

The focus of Vol 2 of the journal, due for publication in September 2012,
will be *Europe on and Behind the Screens*.

*Call for Papers: Vol. 2 September 2012.*
*500 word proposals: January 5th, 2012.*
*2-4,000 word articles: April 1st, 2012.*
