Please join the Department of History for the second screening of the Film in/as History series, focused on our two-year curricular theme, Migrations.
After La Bestia last quarter, the Film in/as History series will continue with Mediterranea (107 mins, 2015). Directed by Jonas Carpignano, Mediterranea tells the story of migrants between Burkina Faso and southern Italy. It speaks to the long history of migration in the Mediterranean as well as the violent realities faced by African migrants which are otherwise lost under the word ‘crisis’.
Prof. Harold Marcuse and Kalina Yamboliev, a Ph.D. candidate in History, will introduce the film and lead the discussion afterwards. Light refreshments will be served.
