SCMS Reception

Join us for a reception at the University of Illinois Press tables to celebrate the Contemporary Film Directors series and new series editors on Friday, March 15 at 3:30-4:15pm ET.

New Series Editors Announcement

This month, the University of Illinois Press welcomes new co-editors to one of its flagship series, Contemporary Film Directors (CFD). Sarah Keller and Joshua Yumibe will join incumbent co-editor Justus Nieland as the new editorial team overseeing CFD, the acclaimed collection of short commentaries on films by living directors from around the world. Keller and Yumibe succeed Jennifer Fay, Nieland’s co-editor since the pair replaced founding editor James Naremore in 2012.

“I’m proud of the series’ increased visibility and how the individual volumes have opened authorship studies to novel and vital methods of reading,” Fay said. “The series is now under the most capable and smart direction of three stellar scholars and will certainly flourish and explore new critical edges.”

Anniversaries We’re Celebrating

Women’s Media History Now! was established in 2009 to promote the groundbreaking research of a new generation of motion picture historians, who opened up the previously unknown and unexplored work of women in world film history. Originally called “Women and Film History International,” the series is global in scope and investigates the significance of women’s contributions to film, television, broadcast, audiovisual, print, digital, and social media history by taking advantage of archival discoveries and new materials.
