Full Event Details:
The full context/introduction to this live and interactive discussion is provided by Aberystwyth in a Headliner recorded resource here (https://www.channeltalent.co.uk/event/modern-languages-immigration-integration-in-france-on-film-in-song-university-tutorial-with-dr-gabor-gelleri-from-aberystwyth-university/
) which offers insights into the key academic research and debate related to this fascinating topic. This recording can be watched as a class activity or independently in preparation for the discussion and develops the points below:
- The session will assess the question of the integration of immigrant communities as represented in a variety of films (‘La haine’; ‘Un deux trois soleil’; ‘Les misérables’) and songs (‘Douce France’ by Carte de Séjour; ‘Ça va pas être possible’ by Zebda and ‘Marly-Gomont’ by Kamini).
- We will cover the major moments of French colonisation and of immigration towards France, before turning towards the artistic representation of immigration, changing in time, in form as well as in geographical areas covered.
- Students will be invited to contribute to the discussion around the imagery and symbolism related to immigration and to the life experiences of individuals and communities arriving from the former colonial empire. Students will be able to link these materials (and follow further paths included in the accompanying material) to gain a detailed understanding of the effects and afterlife of colonisation, and the difficulties of the process of integration.
The session aims to deepen students’ understanding of the topic whilst enabling them to access and experience a live online university tutorial.
