Lecturers Erika Tan and Dr Lara Perry in conversation

Book your free place at this discussion of Tan’s recent series of films at the Royal Pavilion on 16 November.

Erika Tan and Dr Lara Perry, deputy head of the School of Humanities, discuss Tan’s recent series of films that take the figure of a Halimah, a ‘Malay weaver from the 1924 Empire Exhibition (London) as a central motif. The conversation will consider colonial exhibition tropes, cultural ambassadors and the difficulties of retracing the forgotten.
