The Department of English in Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences was the bona fide star of the 56th annual conference of the Society for Cinema & Media Studies (SCMS), recently held in Montreal, Canada.

More than 15 people affiliated with the University, including seven Ph.D. students and eight alumni (i.e., two former undergraduates and six former graduate students), presented papers at the five-day conference, dedicated to the critical study of film, television, video, and new media. They were joined by more than 2,000 other registered attendees from over 40 countries.
