This is the first book to explore in detail the vital connections between today’s digital culture and the history of screen entertainments and technologies. It moves from the magic lantern, the stereoscope and early film to the DVD and the internet. Bringing together some of the most important new work on multimedia culture and history by key writers, Multimedia Histories is an indispensable new sourcebook for this expanding discipline. By reaching back into the innovative media practices of the nineteenth century, it reveals many of the continuities between nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century multimedia culture. It will also be an important intervention in rethinking the boundaries of Anglo-American film and media history.
