SCMS November News Brief
Greetings from the Translation Committee. Our
committee continues the mandate of making non-English film/media scholarship
available to the English-speaking community in order to expand and
internationalize the contours of film/media studies.
The committee devoted the fall
of 2010 to generating a pool of eight essays/book chapters/books to be
considered for translation. They represent scholarship originally written in
Russian, French, Spanish, Japanese and Portuguese. In Spring 2011, we selected
three significant shorter essays to be translated and
published in Cinema Journal.
The three essays are:
1) An excerpt from Matsumoto Toshio’s Eizo no Hakken (1963)
Piqueras’ "Nuestro Cine Amateur es Nuestro Cinema" (1935)
3) Sergey Tretyakov’s "Proizdodstvennyi
suggestions and interests from
people who work on/with translation, yet who are currently not on the
committee. If you are interested, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
