Cinema and Technology

Cinema and Technology focuses on the emerging field of study on the history of film technology and its impact on the way the world is experienced, rationalized and apprehended. The materiality and nature of film devices, their function and use in diverse industrial, educational, and social contexts, and the integration of film technologies as an enduring element of consciousness, forms the basis of the scholarship presented in our books.
