Birkbeck Arts Week
23 – 28 May 2011
This year’s Arts Week includes events from across the five academic departments within Birkbeck’s School of Arts with lectures, workshops, conferences and film screenings in different locations. While the majority of our activities will be in the School at 43 Gordon Square, there will also be events in Waterstones, the National Portrait Gallery, Drill Hall, Wigmore Hall and our Stratford campus.
Discussion of Film: ‘Dawn of the Dead’ (George A. Romero, 1978)
The film will be introduced by Dr Amber Jacobs (Psychosocial Studies) and followed with a panel and audience discussion with Mark Fisher (Cultural Studies and Music Culture, Goldsmiths) Gordon Hon (Artist and Lecturer in Visual Culture, Winchester School of Art), Paul Myerscough (Senior Editor at the London Review of Books) Dr Catherine Grant (Senior Lecturer in Film from Sussex University). This event is part of the ‘Intrusions: Vampires, Strangers and Monstrous Others’ series convened by the Urban Studies group of the Raphael Samuel History Centre.
