Scholarly Interest Groups

Scholarly Interest Groups (SIGs) are groups comprised of SCMS members who share an interest in a particular medium, a genre, a methodology, the media of a particular nation or region, or any other subcategory within the rubric of cinema and media studies. SIGs are formed and maintained to provide fellowship and networking opportunities for their members, and to support scholarship, pedagogy, and mentoring in that particular area within SCMS.

For general information or information specific to organizing a new Scholarly Interest Group, SCMS members can reference the SCMS bylaws and policies relevant to SIGs or contact the SIG liaison Sean Griffin.

Information about the responsibilities of SIG Chairs and SIG Coordinating Committee Chairs can be found here (opens as a PDF).
