Northern Lights is a peer-reviewed international publication dedicated to the study of film and media.
 
The journal focuses on the interplay between film and media and their cultural and social context. Film and media have emerged as important institutions of modern society at the same time as mobile and interactive media technologies become integrated into the fabric of wider culture and society. The development of new social networks, changes in political communication and governance and the changing relationship between art, culture and commercial markets are important aspects of these new dynamics.
 
Northern Lights is published once a year and takes the form of a book-length anthology of articles related to a specific theme.

Aims and scope of the journal

Northern Lights: Film & Media Studies Yearbook is a peer-reviewed international yearbook started in 2002 and dedicated to studies of film and media. Each yearbook is devoted to a specific theme. In addition, every volume may include articles on other topics as well as review articles. The yearbook wants to further interdisciplinary studies of media with a special emphasis on film, television and new media. Since the yearbook was founded in Scandinavia, the editors feel a special obligation towards Scandinavian and European perspectives.

But in a global media world it is important to have a global perspective on media culture. The yearbook is therefore open to all relevant aspects of film and media culture: We want to publish articles of excellent quality that are worth reading and have direct relevance for both academics in the broad, interdisciplinary field of media studies in both humanities and social sciences and for students in that area. But we also want to appeal to a broader public interested in thorough and well-written articles on film and other media.


Call for Submissions
Northern Lights: Film & Media Studies Yearbook is published once a year and the publication has the form of a book-length anthology of articles related to a specific theme, but also with articles outside the theme. The editor is always open to receiving submissions. Articles should not exceed 8000 words, should contain references and bibliography and must include an abstract of no more than 150 words. All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.
