Teaching Eastern European Cinema and Screen Media

Film teaching has attracted increasing scholarly attention (Mette Hjort), especially in relation to practice-based education, but in the context of Eastern Europe, this topic remains an area which has barely been tackled, at least in English. For this special issue of SEEC, we invite contributions on any aspects of teaching and learning East European cinema and other screen media, such as television, music video and computer games. Given the character of this topic, we welcome academic articles, journalistic pieces, as well as well crafted personal testimonies of teaching and studying cinemas of Eastern Europe. We also welcome contributions that discuss the challenges, new situations and the lasting legacy that online teaching during the epidemic has created.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Teaching history of Eastern European cinema during state socialist and postsocialist period.
  • Teaching Eastern European screen media in the ‘East’ and in the ‘West’, in English and in Eastern European national languages.
  • Teaching Eastern European screen media in national and transnational contexts.
  • Teaching Eastern European screen media after the opening of the state archives in the region.
  • Teaching Eastern European screen media and the issue of a canon.
  • Theoretical and practice-based film and media education in Eastern Europe.
  • The status of Eastern European film and media studies within film and media scholarship.
  • The leading Eastern European film educators.
