An evening of talks, films and photographs that explore what life is like in different cultures around the world, beginning in Manchester
Join us for an evening of short talks, films and photographs about people’s lives in different parts of the world – starting with Manchester – in order to explore the shared and different experiences of being human in the contemporary world. We will show short films made in different parts of the world, that are drawn from the last five years of the University of Manchester’s world leading MA Visual Anthropology programme.
These will be accompanied by a photographic exhibition, short talks and discussions. The filmmakers and photographers will also be on hand to participate in a Q+A session.
The world has long been interconnected through mass transportation, migration, money, wars and tourism, but perhaps never with quite the same intensity as over the last few decades. Anthropology provides us with a better understanding of the diversity of social life and human cultures at home and abroad, and this is shown through this whistle-stop world tour.
Films featured at this event are:
4.30: Ping Pong – directed by Hugh Hartford
6.30: Queens of Syria – directed by Yasmin Fedda
Contact: Professor Andrew Irving
