Language and Identity: Explorations Through Film
The dynamic relationship between languages and the different community identities to which they are linked can be explored innovatively through film. This event will showcase four short films made by former students of the University of Manchester’s Visual Anthropology MA programme, who are now independent film makers. They address themes from the Manchester-led, Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded ‘Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community’ research project which supported the films. Languages ranging from Arabic, indigenous languages of Mexico and South Africa, and ‘Spanglish’ are featured.
Taking the form of a mini film festival with talks and discussion, the event is aimed at all members of the general public interested in language, identity and/or the short film documentary genre.
