is a new international electronic journal of visual media and history,
concerned with:
+ the history of film, television and multimedia,
+ the representation of history in/on these media,

It will publish material of interest to historians of film and media, to
film and media scholars, to social historians interested in the place of
film and media within general history, to film-makers interested in the
history of their craft or in representing history through their
productions, to film and media librarians and archivists.

- the representation of women in film of the twenties and thirties.
