Recent studies have demonstrated the potential of a constructivist approach towards the political history of Cold War Western Europe. Expanding on the works of thinkers such as Pierre Bourdieu and Michel Foucault, historians demonstrate that we need to understand the political as a communicative space shaped by verbal and performative interaction. They argue that various acts of communication constantly reconfigured the boundaries of what is considered as political.
The Projector is developing a special (potentially double) issue on the evolving roles of television and film in the twenty-first century. The issue(s) will feature research that illuminates cultural, aesthetic, or material aspects of contemporary popular media, which is created, interpreted, and recreated in an environment filled with interactive channels, where films, television-streaming programming, and news of the day are “events” shaped by forces ranging from corporate entities to celebrities to active members of participatory culture.
