Audiovisual Thinking issues

Each issue of Audiovisual Thinking will call for and then showcase academic videos around a specific theme within audiovisual culture and the media. The journal also accepts ‘opinion’ or ‘reflective’ audiovisual pieces on any area of audiovisual research or pedagogy. 

Submissions are welcome from the areas of the Arts, Journalism, Media and Communication studies, as well as Education and the Social Sciences where audiovisual material is routinely used, or is gaining ground, as an academic research tool or teaching method.

Forthcoming issues  

Previous issues:

Fifth Issue: Audiovisual learning 2.0
When the development of digital technology changes the media landscape – with for example social media, Web 2.0, mobile platforms and advanced animation capabilities – the conditions for teaching and learning also change. We invite theoretical and practice-based submissions as well as case studies on all aspects of education, lifelong learning and audiovisuality.

Forth Issue: Digital activism - audiovisual strategies in political mobilizing 
This issue of Audiovisual Thinking address the role of new media in politics with specific  attention towards social mobilizing and activism. We invite both academic, practice-based,  theoretical and empirical, contributions on all aspects of the interaction between audiovisuality, ‘the viral’, p2p and activist politics – top down or bottom up.

Guest editor: Cecilie Givskov, University of Copenhagen,

Third issue: The real, the virtual and the fictional - identity and authenticity in the digital era
What is digital? What is virtual? How do the digital and the virtual relate to each other? Is virtual the opposite of real, or is it a subset of reality? And where in this does the fictional come in? Although philosophical, these issues have in many different ways impacted on how we think about identity, integrity, communication and media in this digital era we have created for ourselves. The call is now closed.

Second issue: Rights and wrongs in the age of digital media
The second issue of Audiovisual Thinking will focus on how copyright and intellectual property issues relate to audiovisuality in general and academic video essays in particular.  Call for videos for this issue is now closed.

First issue: What is audiovisual thinking?
The first issue explored the legacy of audiovisual content in contemporary academic research and thinking. Call for videos for this issue is closed.
