Society for Cinema and Media Studies Conference, Los Angeles

I am so excited to be going to this years SCMS conference in Los Angeles! I've never been to the conference before, never been to LA before, so there's plenty to be excited about! The conference programme and the screenings all sound really interesting - can't wait!

Me, Karl Magee (University Archivist here at Stirling university) and Christophe Dupin (Queen Mary University of London) will be presenting a panel on 'The Cinema Authorship of Lindsay Anderson'. Karl Magee will present a paper 'The Auteur in the Archive… Finding Lindsay Anderson' and Christopher Dupin will present a paper 'The Auteur vs. the Institution: The Rise and Fall of the Relationship between Lindsay Anderson and the British Film Institute'. My paper is entitled 'The trouble with The Old Crowd - examining collaboration and authorship'. I won't say much more about it now - best get on with writing my paper!

If anyone wants to read more about the conference the programme is now available


  1. L.A. is, for me, a great place to visit, but I'd never want to live there! Enjoy yourself.

  2. Yes I'm looking forward to visiting LA, but also to seeing Las Vegas and San Francisco!
