Fieldnotes
Share |

  

 

Fieldnotes is an SCMS project to conduct, circulate and archive interviews with pioneers of film and media studies. In addition to recognizing the contributions of key scholars, the project also aims to foster knowledge of and interest in the diverse and dynamic developments that have shaped -- and continue to shape -- our expanding field.

Fieldnotes is currently led by Chris Holmlund, with the help of a committee comprised of Haidee Wasson and Mike Zryd. It is sponsored by SCMS. It was initially funded by SCMS, the Advanced Research Team on History and Epistemology of Moving Image Study (ARTHEMIS), and the Fonds de Recherche du Québec - Société et Culture (FRQSC). We thank its founding primary investigator, Haidee Wasson (Concordia University), for her conception and design of the Fieldnotes oral history project.

If you are interested in contributing to Fieldnotes, or would like to suggest the name of an interview subject, or would just like to know more, please contact Chris Holmlund.

Chair: Chris Holmlund, University of Tennessee (2018-2020)
