Description

Childhood and Nation in World Cinema: Borders and Encounters Since 1980 is an international, collaborative research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.


The project presents an interdisciplinary, international, and multi-modal interrogation of the appropriations of childhood in the cinematic imaginaries of diverse national projects. Tropes of belonging, exclusion and inter-cultural encounter in world cinema are identified at national and transnational levels.


Several international conferences will take place, in Australia and China, as well as Cambridge and Royal Holloway. The programme of events also includes post-graduate master-classes, workshops with school children and curated screenings. The project will result in book length publications.
