"Screen Culture: History and Textuality" explores the impact of digital culture on the discipline of film and television studies. Whether the notion of screen culture is used to designate the technological platforms common to present-day digital media, or whether it refers to the support material on which moving images have historically been projected, scanned or displayed, "Screen Culture" is primarily concerned with the intermedial appraisal of film, television and digital culture. Included are discussions of the interrelation of film and television with the nineteenth-century panorama, the 'dissolving views' of lantern technologies, radiophony, and the present-day immersive views provided by internet technologies and large-scale film presentations such as IMAX. The anthology includes fifteen previously unpublished essays by Richard Abel, William Boddy, Ben Brewster, Douglas Gomery, Alison Griffiths, Vreni Hockenjos, Jan Holmberg, Arne Lunde, Peter Lunenfeld, Charles Musser, Jan Olsson, Barry Salt, Michele L. Torre, William Uricchio, Malin Wahlberg, and is edited by John Fullerton, an associate professor in the Department of Cinema Studies at Stockholm University, and finalist in the 2001 Kraszna-Krausz Moving Image Book Awards. His previous publications for John Libbey Publishing include "Celebrating 1895: The Centenary of Cinema" (1998), and in the "Stockholm Studies in Cinema" series, "Nordic Explorations: Film Before 1930" (1999) and "Moving Images: From Edison to the Webcam" (2000).
