The Centre for Television Histories (University of Warwick) was established in 2015 with the aim of developing new, innovative, impactful research in the field of television history. Since our inception, researchers situated in the Centre have produced a wide array of books, articles, and theses (as well as all the work that is currently under construction in the Centre). We’ve also been working to foster connections with archives, programme makers and commissioners, museums, and a whole host of other organisations to bring attention to television history, heritage, audience memory and preservation. As well as supporting researchers at all career stages here at Warwick (from undergraduate research onwards), the Centre aims to make a positive impact on the field of historical television studies.
In relation to this latter aim, the Centre will hold an online workshop (via Zoom) on 12th July 2021, 2-4.30 pm, that brings together researchers from the field and the editors of the key Anglophone journals that publish television scholarship with a historical focus. This event will introduce researchers to the editorial aims of key publications in the field relating to television history, via a relaxed Q&A session online. We aim to develop a better understanding of the kind of work editors are looking for on behalf of their journals, to provide a platform for the discussion of shared issues and problems with historical television research from the journals’ point of view, and to enable researchers to ask questions about developing their work for publication.
