Film Culture in Transition is committed to a plurality of approaches and to initiating informed debate on the new technologies, their histories and the new forms of creativity transforming cultural life. Our books, while putting the emphasis on current work in film theory and media history, also feature innovative studies on film authors and the vital issues in the politics of the image.

"Film History as Media Archaeology is a fantastic continuation and crystallisation of what the Film Culture in Transition-book series has done for so many years and over so many volumes: moved film studies into new discussions, combining new empirical insights with theoretical impact that continues to excite. Like Elsaesser, the book series of which he is the General Editor has shifted our guiding questions from the mere “what is cinema” to the critically situated practices: where and when is cinema, where and when is media, and where and when is theory?"

- Professor Jussi Parikka, Winchester School of Art/University of Southampton, author of What is Media Archaeology? and A Geology of Media.

 

 "With its 50th installment, the Film Culture in Transition book series edited by Thomas Elsaesser for Amsterdam University Press, reaffirms its position as one of the most important and indispensable venues for film and media research in English language academic publishing. With its ground-breaking monographs and edited collections, the series has been driving the debate in our field for more than two decades now."

- Professor Vinzenz Hediger, Professor of Cinema Studies, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt 

 

"Not only is Film History as Media Archaeology impressive in its own right, as the 50th volume in Film Culture in Transition, his book series with Amsterdam University Press, Elsaesser has deployed his acumen and rigor to nurture, shape and inspire a generation (or two) of scholars."

 - Professor Charles Musser, Yale University
