STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF BLACK LIVES MATTER

We mourn the racist violence against George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others and protest the acts of injustice and brutality against people of color worldwide at the hands of police and white supremacist systems.

As board members of an educational institution, we want to better understand the role that we ourselves play in furthering or condoning racism, and we pledge to bring the lessons we learn into this institution. We also commit to confronting white supremacy, racist ideologies, and the reckless demagoguery of people who seek to divide us by race, impede the struggle for justice and equality, and drum up fears of people of color. 

We recognize our own responsibility in this struggle, and we are establishing a society working group charged with implementing these values through a set of action items.

SCSMI Board of Directors

Welcome to SCSMI

The Society for Cognitive Studies of the Moving Image (SCSMI) fosters interdisciplinary research within the areas of moving image history, theory, and aesthetics; cognitive science; and the philosophy of mind and art. The Society supports dialogue in all directions, so that every represented discipline may learn from the others. Through exchange, debate, and collaboration among moving image theorists, historians, analysts, philosophers, scientists, and artists, SCSMI promotes research into moving image media and the ways in which such media reflect, shape, and are shaped by the human mind.
