SCMS - Katherine C. Kovacs Essay Award
Organization: Society for Cinema and Media Studies
Two awards for outstanding scholarship in film and media studies will be given. They should be original works that significantly advance scholarship and thinking in the field either by opening up new lines of inquiry or by consolidating existing ones at a high level of accomplishment. Republished volumes and multi-authored anthologies are not eligible. Publishers and journal editors will be invited to nominate books and essays, but individual SCMS members should feel free either to submit copies of books or articles directly or urge their publisher or editor to do so.
