Organised by The Methods Lab, Sociology Dept, Goldsmiths, University of London.http://www.gold.ac.uk/methods-lab/
Screenings and Presentations from  –  Prof. Avtar Brah (Birkbeck), Jasbir Panesar (UEL), Alia Syed (Film maker & Research Fellow, Southampton Solent), George Shire (Cultural Critic), Gil Toffell (Leverhulme Research Fellow, Queen Mary College) and Nirmal Puwar (Goldsmiths).

Working on different and historically located diasporic locations with film, this panel will address the space(s) of film viewing, as well as the space of working with film as academics, researchers, archivists, film makers and collaborators. The event will examine the ways in which film both opens up and constrains their abilities to make visible memories and journeys that are otherwise absent from the public domain.
