April 21st 2011 | 9 comment(s)

 British Film Institute, London (UK) 22nd June 2011

The above ESRC day seminar will be held at the BFI in London. The seminar asks questions such as, ‘What are the relationships between popular culture and people’s identities, in particular as learners? What kinds of ‘teaching’ and ‘learning’ go on within the everyday space of popular culture? What are the intersections of these processes with class, ethnicity, gender and sexuality?

Guest speakers include: Professor Beverly Skeggs (Goldsmiths College, University of London) speaking on ‘Performing feminine selves in Reality TV: returning the sensual spectacle of women’s labour’; and Dr Rebekah Willett (London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education) on: ‘An Ethnographic Study of Preteen Girls’ Play with Popular Music on a School Playground in the UK’.

Practitioners discussing their work on the day will include: Wendy Earle (British Film Institute (BFI) Online Education Manger); Noel Goodwin (BFI Education Programmer, Young People); Adrian Mills (Chief Adviser, BBC Children's & BBC Learning); Dr Jo Twist (Commissioning Editor, Education, Channel 4); and Jenny Grahame (Media Consultant, English and Media Centre, London).
