SCMS 2014 took place in Seattle, and featured talks by Roehampton film scholars William Brown, Deborah Jermyn and Iain Smith.

Deborah took part in a workshop on the Conceptual and Pedagogical Work of Ageing and Star Studies, while Iain delivered a paper entitled "Remakesploitation: Transnational Borrowings between Turkish and Italian Exploitation Cinema." Finally, William gave a talk on cinema and smell as part of a panel looking at cinema as a multisensory (and not just audiovisual) medium.

Iain also chaired a panel on Developing and Managing Transnational Research Projects.

SCMS is the biggest Film Studies conference in the world and it is fantastic that Roehampton offers up a strong presence on such a high-profile stage.
