Journal of Scandinavian Cinema is a scholarly journal devoted to excellent research and stimulating discussion focusing on the cinemas of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, both within their national and Nordic contexts, and as transnational cinemas in a globalized world.

The Nordic countries have a rich history of fiction and non-fiction filmmaking as well as lively contemporary screen cultures. Journal of Scandinavian Cinema places no restrictions on time period or genre, but particularly encourages the examination of previously uncharted subject matter and the use of new approaches. In that regard, we anticipate that research on Scandinavian cinema will be broadened through the application of ideas, concepts and research traditions from related disciplines. The journal also seeks to highlight the relevance of other audio-visual media and screen cultures, both those that have coexisted with film for some time (such as television) and those that are still gaining importance (such as online video).

Scholars from film studies, Scandinavian studies and any related field are invited to explore Journal of Scandinavian Cinema and to contribute articles that inspire a deeper understanding and an ongoing exchange of ideas across national and disciplinary boundaries.

Special Issue

‘Nordic Production Studies

Guest editors: Sarah Atkinson (Kings College London), Olof Hedling (Lund University), Mette Hjort (Hong Kong Baptist University) and Pietari Kaapa (University of Warwick).

Production studies has emerged as a vibrant field in contemporary media studies. The work of John Caldwell, Michael Curtin, Toby Miller and Mette Hjort has contributed to developing conceptual and theoretical approaches to the field, working simultaneously on both global and local levels of policy and production management. This work paves the way for a media studies that addresses the internal machinations of an industry often exhibiting egalitarian and liberal values on a textual level while the reality of working conditions tends to diverge considerably from these optimistic projections. While there have been studies of above-, across- and below-the-line labour in the Nordic media industries, these tend to be focused on communicating with highly specialized interest groups (journalists, regulators, film producers, social media marketers, etc.).

JSCA is a peer-refereed scholarly journal devoted to all aspects of film culture in Scandinavia (including Finland and Iceland). The journal aims to be an indispensable contributor to the growth of knowledge about Scandinavian filmmaking and to provide a stimulating platform for discussions on Scandinavian cinema and its social and cultural background. The editors welcome full-length articles (4000-8000 words) as well as shorter items such as interviews, conference reports and commented archival documents. Scholars in film studies, Scandinavian studies and related areas are invited to contribute articles that reflect their research and teaching interests and will inspire the exchange of ideas and expertise across nations and disciplines.

Possible research topics include:

  • Under-researched historical periods and topics or new approaches to established research areas
  • Scandinavian cinema in a global context: the international distribution and reception of Scandinavian films, the work of Scandinavian directors and actors in other countries and representations of the region and its people in international films
  • Film industry developments: funding, censorship and technological developments as well as the significance of new, digital forms of distribution and exhibition
  • Studies on genre, representation, national cinema and other theoretical concepts
  • Scandinavian directors, writers, producers and actors working in film and television, both within the region and internationally
  • Inter-art and inter-media discussions - for example, adaptations of literary works and film-television co-productions
  • Cinema’s role in the teaching and understanding of Scandinavian culture
  • Reports on new research projects and festivals as well as interviews with filmmakers and key persons within Scandinavian film culture

Although JSCA covers all historical periods, a major goal is to keep readers informed about what is going on today. Articles on recent trends, major film releases, ongoing film debates and other aspects of contemporary cinematic culture are particularly welcome.
