We enjoyed meeting authors and selling books at the annual meeting of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies in Seattle last week.
Congratulations 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.
People 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.
Here's Karen Beckman with her book Animating Film Theory, another
big seller at the conference.
Jennifer Peterson with her book Education in the School of Dreams: Travelogues and Early Nonfiction Film.
Forthcoming authors stopped by, too. Here's Linda Williams with an advance copy of On The Wire, which will be out in August.
And here's Nguyen Tan Hoang with his forthcoming book A View from the Bottom: Asian American Masculinity and Sexual Representation, which comes out in August as well.
Thanks so much to everyone who came by the booth. Check out a few more pictures on our Facebook page. See you next year in Montreal.
