The International Association for Media and History (IAMHIST) is a scholarly organization which brings together media historians, media scholars and professionals with an interest in media history. Founded in the summer of 1977 it organizes biennial conferences, which have typically rotated between venues in the UK, US and the continent of Europe. The current president is Nicholas J. Cull (A welcome from the President), the Association, having more than a hundred members, is managed by the IAMHIST Council. The association awards the bi-annual Michael Nelson Prize for the best contribution on the subject of media and history to have been published or shown in the preceding two years, given to the book, radio or television programme or series, film, DVD, CDRom, or URL making that contribution.
