Special issue: Current trends in remaking European screen cultures

I’m happy to announce that Communications – The European Journal of Communication Research just published a special issue titled ‘Current trends in remaking European screen cultures’! Eduard Cuelenaere, Stijn Joye and I were the guest editors for this issue, which is one of the outcomes of the symposium ‘Remaking European Cinema‘ we organized last year. As the title of the special issue suggests, the articles we collected here focus on the most recent developments in the European film en television remake industry.
