An Island of Disparity is a weekly informal movie&snacks during the summer term led by/for Goldsmiths postgraduate students from different departments.
An Island of Disparity brings different perspectives and points of view together, in a quest to survey a space of heterogeneity. The platform is a weekly informal movie&snacks during the summer term led by/for Goldsmiths postgraduate students from different departments. Every week, a postgraduate researcher is invited to share a film in relation to his/her research. The programme asks and intents to reflect on the role and position of Goldsmiths through research students, on institutional and social issues affecting minorities.
An Island of Disparity aims to establish a safe space to question traditional academic stances through artistic and experimental approaches. As a result, we intent to stimulate cross-disciplinary exchange of perspectives between postgraduate students, and foster intercultural dialogue in the academic sphere, by presenting films from the “Global South” (with English subtitles) and disseminate research around subalterns subjects.
