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.  


Hiatus on SIG Proposals 
We are delighted to see the engagement of our members with Scholarly Interest Group (SIG) development; the number of SIGs has now grown to 31!  We don’t wish to discourage the formation of new SIGs, but because each group is allotted annual SCMS funding we need to research and refine policies regarding SIGs, particularly regarding funding if/as new SIGs continue to be established. For this reason, the Board has set a temporary hiatus in the consideration of new SIG proposals before the October board meeting, to allow time for a subcommittee to make recommendations on future policies regarding SIGs. We hope to be able to accept new proposals shortly after this meeting.

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

Report Election Results
It is important for each caucus, SIG, and coordinating committee to notify the home office regarding election results. This allows the home office to have an accurate record of all elected individuals for your caucus, SIG, or committee.  Please complete the election results form after your election to ensure all records and the website is up to date.
