ECREA establishes two new thematic sections
ECREA's Executive Board is happy to announce the establishment of two new thematic sections: the Communication History section and the Television Studies section.
A full overview of the thematic sections can be found here:
http://www.ecrea.eu/divisions/section, and a more detailed description of the two new sections can be found below (and on their respective webpages).
ECREA members are invited to join these thematic sections, as multiple section (and network) membership is allowed (and encouraged). The "My Information" part of the ECREA website allows ECREA members to manage their section and network membership. Logging in is required to gain access to "My Information".
The ECREA-Section Communication History intends to bring together scholars from different European countries who approach communication with a historical perspective. This includes the history of communication in general, the history of socially relevant and mass communication, memory studies, the history of ideas related to the field of communication and the methodology and theory of communication history.

The Television Studies Section aims to organise a strong cooperation for European research and education in the field of television studies. In the face of technological and cultural changes to television as we know it, the section will bring together TV researchers from a wide range of disciplines focussing on all aspects of television, both addressing the post-broadcast era and televisions history and multiple futures.
