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)

2) Juan Piqueras’ "Nuestro Cine Amateur es Nuestro Cinema" (1935)

3) Sergey Tretyakov’s "Proizdodstvennyi stsenarii” (1928)

 We welcome 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
