2022 Society for Cinema and Media Studies Annual Conference

About the Conference

The Society’s annual conference provides a forum for scholars and teachers of film and media studies to present and hear new research; to provide a supportive environment for networking, mentoring, and collaboration among scholars otherwise separated by distance, language, or disciplinary boundaries; and to promote the field of cinema and media studies among its practitioners, to other disciplines, and to the public at large, in part through public recognition of award-worthy achievements and other significant milestones within the field.

The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, August 31, 2021 5:00 PM US Central Time.
