Re: <nettime-ann> New issue on âConvergent Television(s)â now available

**This time with a body message - apologies for the inconvenience**

Dear colleagues,

In March, we published the call for papers for the sixth issue of EUscreen's open access journal VIEW, which explores European television history and culture. At the end of December, this latest issue found its way online and it is nowÂfully and freely available atÂwww.viewjournal.eu. All articles can be read on screen, where source materials can be found embedded in the article text, or saved as a PDF for reading offline.

This sixth issue is co-edited by Gabriele Balbi, Assistant Professor in Media Studies at the Università della Svizzera italiana, and Massimo Scaglioni, Assistant Professor of Media History at the Catholic University of Milan.

The history of media convergence, especially of convergent television, is a field that needed further investigation. Media convergence is often considered a taken-for-granted phenomenon, a kind of âirresistibleâ force that has changed and is continuously changing media ecosystems. Furthermore, it seems to be mainly an American phenomenon because it has involved US politics and companies and because the most relevant reflections and publications on this topic come from American scholars.

This issue of VIEW tries to deal with this complex and polysemic concept from different points of view, adopting several theoretical and methodological frameworks. It attempts to counteract some of the aforementioned taken-for-granted ideas, analyzing TV convergence from a historical and long-term perspective, considering symmetrical case studies of success and failures, concentrating on the European dimension through the lens of transnational, comparative, and national contributions.
