In August 2018, Nordic Media History Network (NOMEH) was established in Helsinki. NOMEH operates under the Finnish Historical Society as one of its official committees and it will be run from Helsinki, Finland.
The Nordic Media History (NOMEH) network is a multidisciplinary research network that brings together Nordic scholars interested in media history, thereby enhancing regional cooperation within the field. The network will bring together Nordic media historians from the Nordic region (including the Baltic States).
To establish a sustainable network, a user-friendly infrastructure and effectively integrate research, the network will be put into practice by
- fostering and enhancing methodological issues in the field of Media History,
- organising panels, seminars and conferences held by Nordic media historians both within the network and as a part of bigger conferences,
- developing comparative media history projects between the Nordic countries,
- developing a Nordic research agenda for further empirical transnational and comparative research,
- producing publications on Nordic media history, and
- organising university education, such as summer schools, for Nordic media and history students.
The network will also form a platform for new research initiatives and apply for funding for Nordic collaboration projects.

The Association will not collect a Membership fee. The operations will primarily be covered by external funding to be applied.
