ScreenSite Data: Journals & Blogs

Over the years, ScreenSite has collected links to hundreds of journal and blog titles. In our move from the WordPress platform to a simple HTML Website in 2019, we have preserved most of these data. We may occasionally add to them as ScreenSite moves forward, but we are not actively seeking new listings anymore.

We also recommend Janet Staiger's Media-Studies Journals Cheat-Sheet, although, to our knowledge, it has not been updated since 2013.

Apologies in advance: The data may have gotten a bit dirty in the transition from WordPress to HTML.

Corrections and additions may still be submitted via an online form.

"<em>Antenna</em> is intended to address a broad public inside and outside the university walls. Within those walls, though, it further intends to bridge the gap between scholarly journals, which remain the paradigm for scholarly discourse but too often lack the ability to reply to issues and events in media with any immediacy, and single-author media scholar blogs, which support swift commentary but are limited in their reliance upon the effort and perspectives of individuals. Coordinated by a group of writers who draw on a variety of approaches and methodologies, Antenna, therefore, exists as a means to analyze media news and texts, both as they happen and from multiple perspectives." "<em>Antenna</em> is operated and edited by graduate students and faculty in the Media and Cultural Studies area of the Department of Communication Arts at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. However, content is provided from a mixture of our editors and of a diverse group of writers elsewhere."
