Cin­e­ma and Tech­nol­o­gy is an Eng­lish-lan­guage book series edit­ed by André Gau­dreault and San­ti­a­go Hidal­go and pub­lished by Ams­ter­dam Uni­ver­si­ty Press since 2012. This series focus­es on the emerg­ing field of 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 form the basis of the schol­ar­ship pre­sent­ed in these books.


Nou­velles vues is an open access, bilin­gual schol­ar­ly jour­nal devot­ed to the prac­tices, the­o­ries and his­to­ry of film in Que­bec. Found­ed at Con­cor­dia Uni­ver­si­ty by Bruno Cor­nel­li­er in 2003, Nou­velles vues became a peer-reviewed jour­nal under the edi­tor­ship 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.



Jour­nal of Film Studies

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 a decom­part­men­tal­iz­ing of dis­ci­plines; hence its open­ness to inter­dis­ci­pli­nary think­ing, new top­ics and new methods.

The work under­tak­en under the aegis of this research part­ner­ship will lead to the cre­ation of a bilin­gual (Eng­lish and French) Ency­clopae­dia of Film Tech­niques and Tech­nol­o­gy. Orig­i­nal in its form, this Ency­clopae­dia will pro­pose the­mat­ic par­cours around cin­e­mat­ic appa­ra­tus­es, pro­fes­sions, devices and dis­cours­es on tech­nol­o­gy and tech­niques, bring­ing into play a wide vari­ety of media (news­pa­per arti­cles, draw­ings and tech­ni­cal doc­u­men­ta­tion, images of devices).
