Electronic and audiovisual mass media play an increasing role in modern societies, presenting particular challenges to scholars writing the history of the 20th century onwards. This issue explores what contemporary historians can learn from researchers in media studies, and vice versa. It showcases works which look at the historical role of mass media in social and political change, tracing their impact beyond national boundaries and institutional settings. Particular attention is paid to the role of media personnel, processes of societal reception and comparative approaches. Experts from different fields – history, mass communications, TV studies – engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue and suggest answers to the most pertinent methodical and theoretical challenges faced.
