Aims & Scope

Published on behalf of the Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research

The Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society (JEMMS) explores the knowledge and understanding of past and present societies as constituted and conveyed via formal and informal educational media, within and beyond schools. Its focus is on various types of texts and images found in textbooks, museums, memorials, films and digital media. Of particular interest are conceptions of time and space, image formation, forms of representation, as well as the construction of meaning and identity (ethnic, national, regional, religious, institutional and gendered). The contents of educational media may also be examined in relation to their production and appropriation in institutional, sociocultural, political, economic and historical contexts. However, the journal is international and interdisciplinary and welcomes empirically based contributions from the humanities, social sciences, STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), as well as theoretical and methodological studies.
