I am delighted to welcome you to our website.

Whether you are media historian, an archivist taking care of media archives, a professional rooted in the media industry, an independent producer, an early career researcher or professional, or anyone else, I welcome you to our Association.

What we at IAMHIST share is passion for media history and a profound interest in how media have reflected, assessed and constructed historical events throughout time. I have been lucky enough to be able to explore this in my own academic work in many different ways. From historical research on archival footage on the First World War to the development of VR applications for colonial media heritage. As for many others working in the field of media and history, IAMHIST has been my constant companion for many years.  I am honored and proud to lead the International Association for Media and History as its 10th president and together with the IAMHIST council advance its mission.

IAMHIST especially values collaboration between researchers, media professionals and archivists. At our live events, on our online blog, and on the pages of the Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television we foster an open-minded and friendly environment. We especially welcome those who are new to the field or are coming from regions where the media and history community can benefit from our support.

 I am looking forward to exchanging ideas at one of our events
