The International Journal on Stereo & Immersive Media is a new open access and peer-reviewed journal that aims to reflect on the emergence of our progressively immersive media culture with a historical, critical and contemporary perspective. This immersive media culture depends both on state of the art technologies and on historical and archaeological media that once sought to expand our sensory experiences. Stereo technologies (stereoscopic and stereophonic) are an accomplished example of this desire to add a sense of presence to visual and audio experiences, participating in and boosting contemporary technologies.
