This website is part of a larger dissertation project on the history of video retail and shifting attitudes toward motion pictures in America in the 1970s and 1980s. The site was created by Joshua Greenberg, who was a PhD student in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University. The Center for History and New Media at George Mason University hosted the site and supported work on the project through workshop and grant opportunities. The research was also funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. Hosted at chnm.gmu.edu/mars/videostoreproject.
