Lindsey Scott, an English major and Film Studies minor, has been accepted to this year’s Society for Cinema and Media Studies Undergraduate Conference (SCMS-U). This is a very competitive conference, with only 30% of submissions accepted. Lindsey is the second College of Charleston student to be accepted to SCMS-U since its inception in 2013. This year’s conference takes place at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, April 11-13. Lindsey plans to present a paper entitled “Overcoming Patriarchal Power and Gendered Spaces in The Color Purple,” and it is based on the work she did for a course on iconic heroines in film and literature taught by the English department’s Dr. Tim Carens. Congratulations, Lindsey!
