Society for Cinema and Media Studies, Seattle, March 2014

We enjoyed meeting authors and selling books at the annual meeting of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies in Seattle last week. 

FuruhataCongratulations to Yuriko Furuhata, whose book Cinema of Actuality: Japanese Avant-Garde Filmmaking in the Season of Image Politics won the 2014 SCMS Best First Book Award. Here she is, posing with her book and poster. Congratulations are also in order for Jonathan Sterne, whose recent book MP3: The Meaning of a Format was selected for the Award of Distinction by the 2014 Kovacs Award committee.

 

 

 

 

BrinkemaPeople were buzzing about Eugenie Brinkema's fabulous talk "Order and the List: 'Final Destination' and Death by Design" and everyone wanted to buy her new book The Forms of the Affects. We sold out of them quickly, but not before she got a chance to pose with it.
