(2) Call for Papers: Using Television’s Material Heritage
Co-edited by John Ellis and Dana Mustata.
Brief: The medium of television is responsible for a huge accumulation of redundant objects.This raises various questions, from practical to historiographical and methodological ones. What are we to do with this accumulation of objects, many of which are not easily recycled?
