"Mapping Movie Magazines" just published

(01-04-2020) Daniel Biltereyst and Lies Van de Vijver are proud to announce their book volume "Mapping Movie Magazines: Digitization, Periodicals and Cinema History".

CIMS members Daniel Biltereyst and Lies Van de Vijver are proud to announce that their volume Mapping Movie Magazines: Digitization, Periodicals and Cinema History (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2020) is now published. The volume is based on a selection of papers from a conference held in Ghent (Turning the page: Digitalization, movie magazines and historical audience studies), and it comprises 14 chapters on the history of movie magazines. Besides drawing attention to the vast amount and the diversity of film periodicals, this edited collection aims at illustrating the considerable research opportunities offered by film trade journals, popular movie magazines and other periodicals with content about the medium that became one of the 20th Century’s most distinguished art and popular leisure forms. This volume brings together for the first time a wide variety of historic research of movie magazines and film trade journals, reflecting on the issue of using these sources for film/cinema historiography and on the impact of digitization processes. Mapping Movie Magazines explores this debate from different disciplinary perspectives, enlightened by case studies from the use of early film trade press to pedagogical uses of digitized periodicals. The volume explores Hollywood’s grip on movie magazines, gender in film journalism, typologies of unknown trade press and movie magazine markets, and subversive Tijuana bibles.
