«Audiovisual Thinking is a pioneering forum where academics and educators can articulate, conceptualize and disseminate their research about audiovisuality and audiovisual culture through the medium of video.
International in scope and multidisciplinary in approach, the purpose of Audiovisual Thinking is to develop and promote academic thinking in and about all aspects of audiovisuality and audiovisual culture.
Advised by a board of leading academics and thinkers in the fields of audiovisuality, communication and the media and hosted by Copenhagen University, the journal seeks to set the standard for academic audiovisual essays now and in the future.
Why is Audiovisual Thinking important?
We study, teach and research the moving image, media and audiovisuality, yet we rarely mediate in these same forms and media. Audiovisual Thinking is a forum where academics and researches can articulate their thoughts and research about audiovisual culture and media in audiovisual ways.
Society has changed radically due technological changes in audiovisual mediation and new digital tools/platforms. Video is becoming a central part of our everyday life and communication, as well as a valuable tool for researchers to share their results, insights and engage with the academic and other communities. Academics have many different forms of media for expressing ourselves, for example text, audio and images. These different media have different strengths and weaknesses. Traditionally, academic dissemination and debate have relied very much on the written text. But now, audio and images should be embraced by the academic world, not because it is better than the written word, but because video can say things differently.»
