The Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) has announced that it has officially approved the formation of a new special interest group (SIG) focused on Media and the Environment.

For information about the group, including a mission statement, goals and objectives, and by-laws, head to the Media and Environment SIG page at the SCMS website.  If you are a member of SCMS and would like to join the group there is a link at the bottom of the group page that you can follow to sign up.

Prior to the first official meeting at the next SCMS conference March 2014 in Seattle, the group will be holding elections to elect co-chairs. Sign up now and look for more information regarding elections and planning for the Seattle SCMS conference over the coming months.

A big thanks to co-organizers Hunter Vaughan and Janet Walker for drafting the necessary documents and pitching the proposal to SCMS. Thanks as well to executive committee members Nicole Seymour, Nicole Starosielski, and Steve Rust, and Graduate Student Representative Kiu-Wai Chu for their support.
