Abstract

Based upon recently recovered materials donated to the International Association for Media and History (IAMHIST), this article traces the evolution of the organisation and its remit to offer a space for historians, archivists and practitioners to research, teach and promote media history. 2017 marked the fortieth anniversary of the ‘official’ start of the Association, and with 2021, IAMHIST celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the inaugural publication of the Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television. Therefore, the time is ripe to contextualise the formative years of the Association and its wider impact on the study of media history internationally, and to reflect on the organisational history of IAMHIST through the analysis of primary source materials and interviews with its members in order to highlight the importance of cataloguing, archiving and digitising IAMHIST’s own history.
