Memberships in SCMS Groups

SCMS members are encouraged to become involved in our various groups in order to network and collaborate with other members with similar interests. Our Caucuses were formed to provide support and advocacy for members historically under-represented within the Society and the academy based on marginal social status. The Scholarly Interest Groups have been formed to facilitate communication and collaboration among members working in a specific area of cinema and media studies. The Graduate Student Organization provides fellowship, support, and advocacy for the Society’s student members.

Members can join as many of our groups as they like.
