NECSUS Editorial Board



The Relocation of Cinema by Francesco Casetti

Read Casetti's wonderful new article on the subject of the diffusion of cinema here. "The enormous diffusion of screens in our daily life – including those of the latest generation, which are well-integrated into domestic and urban environments, interactive and multi-functional, in the form of a window or tabletop – produces a permanence of the cinema. This diffusion allows cinema to continue to survive, even as it adapts to a new landscape."


Future issues

In May 2013 we will publish NECSUS #3, with a special section on the theme "green". 

In October 2013, NECSUS #4 will feature a special section on the theme "waste", guest edited by Alexandra Schneider (University of Amsterdam) and Wanda Strauven (University of Amsterdam).
