Society for Cinema and Media Studies Fieldnotes Collection

Oral History Projects behind-the-scenes still.

The Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) is the leading scholarly organization in the United States dedicated to promoting a broad understanding of film, television, and related media through research and teaching grounded in the contemporary humanities tradition. Fieldnotes is an SCMS project to conduct, circulate, and archive interviews with pioneers of film and media studies. In addition to recognizing the contributions of key scholars, the project also aims to foster knowledge of and interest in the diverse and dynamic developments that have shaped—and continue to shape—their expanding field. The project began in 2014 and is ongoing. Since 2020, the Archive has housed over 50 interviews in the SCMS Fieldnotes Collection.
