Welcome to the latest issue of [in]Transition devoted exclusively to peer-reviewed videographic work. The videos in this issue were all screened at a special preview event devoted to the academic audiovisual essay held at the annual Essay Film Festival (Birkbeck Institute for the Moving Image, University of London/Institute of Contemporary Arts, UK) on March 19, 2016.
As usual, each video is accompanied by a curatorial statement from the maker, as well as peer reviewer evaluations. We publish these peer reviews in the spirit of openness, to encourage scholarship as conversation, and to help our discipline establish a set of criteria for what constitutes valid and valuable scholarship in this emerging form. We invite readers and viewers to join this conversation in the same spirit. Just register as a member of the MediaCommons network and leave a comment in the thread at the foot of each entry.
[in]Transition welcomes submissions of videographic work for peer-reviewed publication in subsequent issues.
