Latino/a Caucus (Founded 1991)
Share |

Who We Are
Our mission is to facilitate interaction between U.S. and Latin American/Latino/a scholars and filmmakers and to support active linkages to Latina/o and Latin American film and television groups and publications, including those associated with other scholarly organizations and bearing international scope.

What We Do
We provide a forum from which to engage in the study of theory, history, and criticism and for the promotion of critical methods and theoretical approaches that center on Latina/o and Latin American representations and production within the realm of film and media culture. We promote these linkages via:

  • our e-mail listserv
  • through invitations to host international/national scholars and film/media artists at the annual Society for Cinema and Media Studies conference
  • through the promotion of Latina/o filmmaking
  • through the dissemination of scholarship and critical materials in English by Latin American and North American schoolars via translation projects.

We also provide access to Latin American/Latina/o film resources on our website and book table that we organize at the annual conference. To this end, the Latino/a Caucus organizes and hosts panels, workshops, screenings, caucus meetings and special events at the SCMS conference.

Our History
The Caucus was founded in 1990 to promote the study and exhibition of Latin American and Latina/o cinema, video, and media within higher education, at the SCMS conference, and at national and international film festivals.
