Save to My Events

Please join us for a panel conversation about academic publishing with three esteemed editors of interdisciplinary journals: Jennifer Bean (University of Washington; Feminist Media Histories), Lauren Cramer (University of Toronto; liquid blackness), and Patricia White (Swarthmore College; Camera Obscura). The panelists will discuss the nuts-and-bolts of journal publishing (for would-be contributors as well as would-be editors), and they will also each reflect on key directions in the fields of film and media studies, feminist and gender studies, and critical race studies, among the various interdisciplinary fields represented by their journals. There will be ample opportunities for Q&A, including the chance to brainstorm ideas collectively for projects these journals might take up in the future. 

This event is presented in collaboration with the CinemArts Scholarly Interest Group of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) and is generously sponsored by the Department of English, the Film Curation and Public Humanities Working Group at the Obermann Center, and the Magid Center for Writing.
