2010 Society for Cinema and Media Studies Conference Los Angeles, CA March 17-21, 2010

Hey fellow HASTAC-ers,

Please let me know if you'll be attending this upcoming conference in March in LA.  I'll be representing HASTAC- I'll be there from Thursday- Sunday, and would love to meet up with other people who are attending.  Also, please let me know if you you'll be presenting at the conference, as I'd love to check out your presentation.  I'm reading a paper, titled "Deleuze and the System of Comics" on this panel:

Comics and Film: The Aesthetics of Adaptation

Check out the website, as well as this page for conference info.  This should be a fantastic conference- least year's was cancelled due to fears of H1N1 in Tokyo, so this conference is a sort of 2-for-1.  I hope to hear from some of you soon!


"The 2010 SCMS Conference will be held March 17-21 in Los Angeles, the historic home of the “Hollywood” film and television industries. In recognition of the increasing international scope of SCMS, the growth of media studies as a discipline world-wide and the planning for both Tokyo (SCMS at 50/Tokyo: Mobilizing the Future/Screening the Past) and Los Angeles (SCMS at 50: Archiving the Future/Mobilizing the Past), the combined theme of the conference will be “Celebrating Fifty Years: Archiving/Screening/Mobilizing the Pasts and Futures of SCMS.”

The conference will be held at The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in downtown Los Angeles, will celebrate the 50th year of our scholarly association, and will include elements of the 2009 Tokyo conference program, which was unfortunately cancelled due to concerns about the H1N1 virus. 

The landmark hotel is located in the heart of the downtown business district (404 South Figueroa Street). The conference will begin Wednesday, March 17 and run through Sunday, March 21, 2010. With its five stunning glass towers, the Westin is one of the most photographed buildings in Los Angeles and is widely regarded as a “City-within-a-City,” occupying an entire city block with over 40 specialty boutiques, restaurants and lounges, a landscaped outdoor pool deck and the largest hotel spa in Los Angeles.
