The EUscreen Network includes leading universities and independent researchers, specifically in the field of media studies. EUscreen advances research in media studies by providing access to a vast and diverse collection of audiovisual materials from Europe’s cultural heritage. Below are some of the ways EUscreen contributes to research in media studies:
- Access to historical content: EUscreen provides access to a wide range of historical audiovisual content, including films, television broadcasts, and other media materials. This accessibility allows researchers to access and study media content from different time periods and regions in Europe.
- Comparative media studies: Researchers can use EUscreen to compare media content from different European countries and time periods. This enables comparative studies that examine how media representations, narratives, and themes evolve across regions and over time.
- Cultural and social studies: EUscreen’s collection includes materials that provide insights into cultural and social changes in Europe. Researchers can use these materials to analyse how media reflects and influences cultural and societal trends.
- Networking: EUscreen facilitates collaboration among researchers, media professionals, and cultural heritage institutions. It provides a platform (the VIEW Journal) for sharing research findings, best practices in media preservation, and fostering a community of scholars in the field of media studies.
