'From the Ashes - Mozambique's path to peace.' Karen Boswall is a part-time lecturer in Visual Anthropology at the University of Kent and an independent film maker. She lived and worked in Mozambique from 1993 – 2007 making award winning documentaries for international broadcast and for educational purposes worldwide.

Her films cover diverse subjects from marine conservation to popular music, women & HIV to peace and reconciliation. Her film 'From the Ashes' (26m, 1998) looks at the use of ritual and cleansing ceremonies in Mozambique in the process of post conflict reconciliation. She will be talking about her research in Southern Mozambique around traditional approaches to reconciliation through the use of spiritual healing, ritual and ceremony. Her talk will last for about half an hour, and she will show the film she made called 'From the Ashes' based on her research, which lasts 24 minutes and then she'll take questions for another half hour.
