Stereoscopic Media


Stereoscopic Media is dedicated to the dissemination of academic research in the humanities on all forms of stereoscopic media: photography, cinema, computer games and other new media. It was initiated by Dr. Miriam Ross and Dr. Leon Gurevitch in 2011 with the aim of bringing together high quality critical thought and investigation of past and present 3D processes.


We are particulalry interested in understanding stereoscopic media’s

Historical Development: stereoscopic technologies and modes of production/consumption from the mid-nineteenth century to the twenty-first.

Unique Aesthetic Cultures: specific stereoscopic aesthetics and audience relationships with the image.

Digital Convergence: the multiple, overlapping impacts of the digital turn upon the fortunes of stereoscopic texts and technologies.
