Journal of European Television History and Culture

Euscreen, the ongoing project on creating access to Europe’s televisual heritage, has recently launched a new online publication, Journal of European Television History and Culture. I have contributed with an article on television as data (in a broad sense), If Content Is King, Context Is Its Crown. The abstract reads as follows: “The future of television—if former Google CEO Eric Schmidt has his way—will use computational modes to attract viewers, structure results, contextual queries and/or evolving viewing patterns within an emerging televisual datascape. Departing from Schmidt’s recent MacTaggart lecture this article tries to track the coded consequences of TV as data, not the least from an audiovisual heritage perspective.”
