The field of “Media Studies” is in constant evolution in English-speaking countries just as much as in other parts of the world. This section provides opportunities for researchers to discuss questions of definitions, frontier concepts, overlapping domains and contiguous perimeters of investigation. In each article, which may be relatively short, the author is invited to present his or her personal view on the field. He or she is free to propose a theoretical, methodological or ideological perspective.
