Cinema and Technology is an English-language collection edited by André Gaudreault and Santiago Hidalgo and published by Amsterdam University Press in 2012. This collection focuses on the emerging field of study on the history of film technology and its impact on the way the world is experienced, rationalized and apprehended. The materiality and nature of film devices, their function and use in diverse industrial, educational, and social contexts, and the integration of film technologies as an enduring element of consciousness, forms the basis of the scholarship presented in its books.
Nouvelles vues is an open access, bilingual scholarly journal devoted to the practices, theories and history of film in Quebec. Created at Concordia University by Bruno Cornellier in 2003, Nouvelles vues has become a scholarly journal under the direction of Jean-Pierre Sirois-Trahan (Université Laval). The journal is now published in partnership with the Observatoire du cinéma au Québec, the Laboratoire CinéMédias and the Département d’histoire de l’art et d’études cinématographiques de l’Université de Montréal.
Cinémas is a specialized journal devoted primarily to film studies and to theoretical or analytical work likely to stimulate reflection resulting from the meeting of different approaches. Paying particular attention to research on current changes in creative practices and theoretical discourse, Cinémas is attentive to the new currents of thought emerging in the field of film studies and advocates for a break-up of disciplines; hence its openness to interdisciplinary thinking, new objects and new methods.
The work undertaken within the framework of this partnership will lead to the creation of a reasoned Encyclopedia of French and English bilingual film techniques. Original in its form, this Encyclopedia will propose thematic paths around cinematographic apparatuses, professions, devices and discourses on the technique, which will mobilize a wide variety of media supports (newspaper articles, drawings and technical documentation, reproduction of devices).
