Society for Cinema and Media Studies

2018Mar. 14th17th

Location: Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, 123 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5H 2M9, Canada

The annual conference of the SCMS is coming around again and Routledge will be on-stand at the event to showcase the latest Media and Film Studies texts.

The conference provides a forum for scholars and teachers of film and media studies to present and hear new research; to provide a supportive environment for networking, mentoring, and collaboration among scholars otherwise separated by distance, language, or disciplinary boundaries; and to promote the field of cinema and media studies among its practitioners, to other disciplines, and to the public at large, in part through public recognition of award worthy achievements and other significant milestones within the field.
