As spring zooms along as a semester and lags behind as a season, we bring you a new episode of Aca-Media with two segments that speak to our current times. First, we present different reflections on and strategies for “Teaching in Trump Times,” composed of submissions from educators across cinema and media studies, representing diverse contexts and experiences in the field. Second, from Fieldnotes, the ongoing oral history project by the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, we present a wide-ranging interview with Hamid Naficy conducted by Kaveh Askari.
