SCMS Position Statement


At this historical moment the Board of Directors of SCMS recognizes that the humanities and humanistic knowledge, on which cinema and media studies are still broadly based, are now more essential than ever.  We therefore pledge to maintain SCMS as an inclusive organization open to all individuals who share our field’s commitments to diverse and multiple national origins, races, ethnicities, religions, genders, sexual orientations, classes, abilities, migration statuses, and other expressions or categorizations of identity.  We understand that this commitment extends to our membership overall as well as to what we study.

A very fitting and welcome statement at a time of such concern and apprehension about the status of US democracy going forward. Thank you for it, Diane Negra
