Film Aesthetics Workshop: Bowie, Berkeley, Beckett

Since it is our last event of the year, we’ve decided to do something special.

Join us in the LHRI from 5pm on the 21st of June for a screening of Samuel Beckett’s Film (1965) and a workshop on David Bowie, Bishop Berkely, Buster Keaton and, of course, Samuel Beckett.



Speakers will include Diane Morgan (Lecturer, School of Fine Art, History and Cultural Studies), Jivitesh Vashist (PhD researcher, School of English) and Laurence Carr (PGR, Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures).

The event will be followed by a wine reception.
