Christine Holmlund, a professor in the Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures, was elected in March as president of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, the foremost international organization in film studies. This singular honor comes in the wake of the publication of her edited volume, American Cinema of the 1990s: Themes and Variations. Holmlund has just signed contracts to prepare an anthology titled The Ultimate Stallone Reader and a monograph titled John Waters’ Female Trouble. She was also the plenary speaker at the international conference of the Film and History Association of Australia and New Zealand, the University of Otago, New Zealand, in November 2008.
