Call for Papers: Television and Education

Giulia Verdini Opportunities

How can we look back on television’s long-standing contributions to education in Europe? How can we ‘read’ these historical contributions through the transnational lens of European television? Last, but not least, how can we work towards a future where new television technologies are opened up for learning and education, and digitized historical content can be used both in education and in the formation of teachers and practitioners?

 

VIEW Journal of European Television History and Culture welcomes contributions about the roles of television technologies in education - they can take the form of articles and video essays.

Contributions are encouraged from authors with different expertise and interests in media studies, television broadcasting, media literacy, archival studies, from researchers to television professionals, to educators, archivists and preservationists. 

  • Deadline for abstracts: 15 April 2021 (max. 500 words)
  • Deadline for papers: 1 September 2021 (3000-6000 words)

Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 10 May 2021.

Proposals and inquiries about the issue can be sent to journal@euscreen.eu.

Did you know that our project In Europe Schools originates from Dutch broadcasting company VPRO’s TV series called “In Europe”, which was dealing with modern European history? The series turned out to be a source of inspiration for history teachers: they explicitly asked for educational resources based on the series. In Europe Schools made toolkits on difficult history, migration, climate change and gender equality. Learn more about the project and the way it contributes to European integration
