Screen Culture is an academic journal that exhibits scholarly writing across a number of disciplines revolving around the culture of media and the moving image. It is our mission to promote and expand the knowledge and understanding of film and media studies with its extensive interdisciplinary intersections. Screen Culture is invested in the research, writing, and creative interpretation of cinema, television, and related media with the influences these broad perspectives have on the shared cultures throughout contemporary industries.

Screen Culture welcomes essay submissions and featured works at all levels on any form of media, moving images, cinema, television, experimental film/media, critical theory, and media history. We recognize the blurred limits of the central field featured in the journal and would like to encourage Screen Culture to become just as extensive as the discipline itself.

Beginning as an undergraduate scholarly journal in 2015, Screen Culture was initiated through the Cinema Studies program at Oakland University as a motivation to grow academic writing for students throughout the humanities. The journal would like to recognize Oakland University, the Cinema Studies program in the department of English, and the College of Arts and Sciences for their support of Screen Culture.
