Things are ramping up for this year's Society for Cinema and Media Studies conference, taking place this week here in Philly. To be specific, I'm working to finish up my paper before the conference starts. For those attending, I'm presenting on Dead End and the Chicago School of Sociology. The panel, on gentrification and the city, is in the very last time slot, but someone has to go last.

It should be a good conference. Just flipping cursorily through the preliminary schedule (it's long!), I see lots of panels I'm interested in, though many are outside my period and specialty area. Which is mostly good.

Hope to see many of you there.
