        Subject: New open access journal: History of Media Studies

We are very pleased to announce the launch of a new international
journal, History of Media Studies (, and the
publication of 16 short, programmatic essays written by the editors and
members of the editorial board. History of Media Studies (HMS) is an
open access, refereed academic journal dedicated to scholarship on the
history of research, education, and reflective knowledge about media and
communication broadly conceived—as expressed through academic
institutions; through commercial, governmental, and non-governmental
organizations; and through “alter-traditions” of thought and practice
often excluded from the academic mainstream. HMS aims to open space
outside the commercialized academic publishing industry—space that is
nonprofit, community-led, care-based, and transparent. The journal’s
inaugural essays address the geopolitics of the history and
historiography of the media and communication fields, structural
inequities and exclusions that have helped constitute them, and
alternative conceptualizations and methodologies for investigating them,
among other topics. Read more about the journal:
