Co-edited by the European (Post)Socialist Television History Network
While recent comparative and transnational approaches in the field of European television history have demonstrated the need for (post)socialist television histories in Europe, there is currently limited scholarship dedicated to this geopolitical area of television in Europe. This area of study has mostly been relegated to the margins of other disciplines and remained isolated by national languages inaccessible to non-native scholars.
This issue is guest edited at the initiative of the European (Post)Socialist Television History Network. It opens up new perspectives on television histories from Eastern Europe and situates this emerging area of study beyond the political histories of the nation-state, Cold War isolation and East-West antagonism.
