CFP: VIEW Journal

Open Call for Article Proposals or Full Articles
Besides our regular themed issues, VIEW Journal now accepts article proposals and full articles for its first open issue. We encourage scholars and audiovisual archivists to use this open call to provide (suggestions for) articles and audiovisual essays, as well as other forms of reflective thought.

Aims and Scope
VIEW Journal of European Television History and Culture is the first peer-reviewed, multi-media and open access e-journal in the field of European television history and culture. It offers an international platform for outstanding academic research and archival reflection on television as an important part of European cultural heritage. The journal is open to many disciplinary perspectives on European television – including television history, media studies, media sociology, cultural studies and television studies. The journal acts as a space for critical reflection on the cultural, social and political role of television in Europe’s past and present. It also provides a multi-media platform for the presentation and re-use of digitized audiovisual material.

In bridging the gap between academic and archival concerns for television and in analyzing the political and cultural importance of television in a transnational and European perspective, the journal aims at establishing an innovative platform for the critical interpretation and creative use of digitized audio-visual sources. In doing so, it challenges a long tradition of television research that was – and to a huge amount still is – based on the analysis of written sources.

Submitting an Article Proposal or Full Article

For our forthcoming open issue (publication in spring 2021), co-edited by Mari Pajala and Liam Wylie, we invite both creative article ideas in the form of extended proposals and full articles for peer review.

  • Send in your article proposals in the form of extended abstracts at the latest by Feb 1st, 2020, via e-mail, to journal [at] euscreen.eu. Selected abstracts will receive an invitation for full articles within a few weeks.
  • It is also possible to submit full articles up until Jun 1st, 2020, at the very latest. Please submit full articles via the VIEW Submissions form

Audience

The journal aims at stimulating new narrative forms of online storytelling, making use of the rich digitized audiovisual collections of television archives around Europe. Authors are encouraged to make use of audio-visual sources to be embedded in the narrative of the articles: not as “illustrations” of a historical or theoretical argumentation, but as problematized evidence of a research question.

VIEW Journal of European Television History and Culture addresses the scientific community as well as a wider audience interested in television as a cultural phenomenon. Broadcast historians, media studies scholars, audiovisual archivists, television professionals as well as the large group of enthusiastic fans of “old” television will have the opportunity to dive into the history and presence of European television by means of multi-media texts.

Contact

If you have questions about the process, do not hesitate to get in touch with managing editor Rieke Böhling or co-editors Mari Pajala and Liam Wylie via the journal’s main contact address: journal [at] euscreen.eu

We are looking forward to receiving your creative proposals (through e-mail) or full articles (here)!

KULA: Knowledge Creation, Dissemination, and Preservation Studies (https://kula.uvic.ca/) is a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal that publishes multidisciplinary scholarship about the creation, dissemination, and preservation of knowledge. We invite abstracts for contributions to a special issue of KULA on Indigenous Knowledges, to be published in 2021.

The Building Reconciliation Forum is an annual national forum that works toward implementing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action within post-secondary institutions. In November 2018, the University of Victoria hosted the fourth annual forum, the theme of which was Ts’its’u’ watul tseep, a Hul’q’umi’num teaching that means “to help one another.” In direct response to the forum, as part of its commitment to implementing the TRC’s Calls to Action in universities, the University of Victoria Libraries made “Building Reconciliation through Archives” the topic of its annual University Librarian’s Lecture. The 2019 lecture presented a panel discussion with Ry Moran, Carey Newman, and Shelagh Rogers about the past, present, and future of Indigenous documentary heritage. The panelists considered questions such as: What is the relationship between documentary heritage and oral history, land, and historical context? Does ceremony have a role in animating archives? Should documentary heritage held by institutions be returned to communities? How can our approach to Indigenous archives deepen our understanding of the meaning of truth and reconciliation?

Some of the issues the panelists raised during this discussion include:

  • the complicity of archives in the deliberate, violent erasure of Indigenous languages and cultures and the myth of archives as an antidote to the “loss” of cultural heritage
  • the importance of living heritage, particularly the knowledge of Elders (e.g., in addressing inaccuracies in colonial narratives about the history of land and land use, which are preserved in the written record of agencies such as Parks Canada), and the need to create space in libraries and archives for the preservation of intangible cultural heritage as well as documentary heritage
  • the Indigenous perspective of land as a source of knowledge and wisdom, connected to culture, language, and world view–a kind of archival record–and environmental destruction as a threat to the land and the knowledge it holds.
  • the challenge of building a future based on reconciliation when many non-Indigenous people still do not understand Canada’s colonial history or how the concentric harms of colonial genocide continue to affect the lives Indigenous Peoples
  • the various ways that individual Indigenous communities view ownership of tangible objects/land and intangible stories/songs

This special issue is inspired by the panelists’ discussion, and it aims to expand the scope of that conversation by considering the broader category of Indigenous Knowledges. We have deliberately titled the issue Indigenous Knowledges, and we seek to include a range of diverse contributions that reflect this plurality, both in subject and format. We encourage submissions on diverse aspects of Indigenous Knowledges and ways of knowing, including but not limited to:

  • Language; language revitalization; translation
  • Art, literature, and music
  • Governance, laws, Protocols, and justice systems
  • Educational systems
  • Traditional Knowledges, including medicinal and environmental knowledge
  • Oral Traditions
  • Spiritual beliefs and practices
  • Preservation, protection, and custodianship of documentary heritage, intangible cultural heritage, and cultural and ceremonial sites
  • Repatriation of documentary and cultural heritage, including ceremonial objects and human remains
  • Ethics of exhibiting and digitising documentary and cultural heritage; the right to privacy
  • Teaching methods in elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education, including content development and best practices for teaching curricula about the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and Treaties and Indigenous rights
  • Librarianship
  • Methods, politics, and ethics of data collection and access to data related to Indigenous Peoples
  • Research practices and methodologies
  • Knowledge systems and policy design in academic and research institutions
  • Editing and publishing
  • Media
  • Health and healthcare
  • Gender and sexuality
  • Architecture
  • Histories of suppressed or destroyed knowledge
  • Citational practices and politics

We are seeking contributions in diverse formats: short- to medium-length scholarly articles; book reviews; project reports; teaching reflections and syllabi; and creative text, image, video, and audio pieces. We invite submissions that incorporate or propose innovative citational practices. We also welcome submissions from youth contributors. Please note that proposals about any non-Indigenous-led projects that do not express clear Indigenous participation, consultation, and relationship from inception will not be considered.

Please submit abstracts of 300-500 words to kulajournal@uvic.ca by 30 November 2019. Based on these abstracts, we will then invite authors to submit full pieces for editorial consideration and, if applicable, peer review.
