AFRICAN STUDIES CENTRE, UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD PRESENTS A LECTURE BY DR. JOANNA LIPPER, PhD
Dr. Lipper will share her insight and unique perspective on the assassination of Nigerian pro-democracy and human rights activist, Kudirat Abiola, as represented in her award-winning documentary The Supreme Price. She will then present the works of other filmmakers, photographers and artists from Africa and around the world, looking back at representations of emotional and physical violence against women historically as well as in the present day. She will discuss her current work with Nigerian collaborators on the representation of gender and violence in the development of a musical film adaptation of the internationally acclaimed Nigerian novel, Stay With Me, by Ayobami Adebayo. Positions and points of view of victims, perpetrators, activists and bystanders will be addressed. The artist’s and visual storyteller’s capacity to inspire attitudinal, societal, behavioural and policy changes through the use of a range of multimedia techniques and narrative strategies will be at the heart of a discussion moderated by Nadia Denton following the lecture.
