Scholarly Interest Groups

Scholarly Interest Groups (SIGs) are groups comprised of SCMS members who share an interest in a particular medium, a genre, a methodology, the media of a particular nation or region, or any other subcategory within the rubric of cinema and media studies. SIGs are formed and maintained to provide fellowship and networking opportunities for their members, and to support scholarship, pedagogy, and mentoring in that particular area within SCMS.

For general information or information specific to organizing a new Scholarly Interest Group, SCMS members can reference the SCMS bylaws and policies relevant to SIGs or contact the SIG liaisons Mary Beltrán and Nick Davis.  A document explaining the responsibilities of the SIG Coordinating Committee chairs and SIG chairs can be found here.

Report Election Results
It is important for each caucus, SIG, and coordinating committee to notify the home office regarding election results. This allows the home office to have an accurate record of all elected individuals for your caucus, SIG, or committee.  Please complete the election results form after your election to ensure all records and the website is up to date.

Funding Requests
For more information about SIG funding and to find instructions for submitting receipts, please see the SIG Funding Request Form.
