Participatory action research and ethnographic theatre:
I Am Rohingya: Staging a Genocide, a discussion with Yusuf Zine
Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2020
Please join us in conversation with Yusuf Zine, director and producer of I Am Rohingya: A Genocide in Four Acts, a documentary film that follows fourteen Rohingya refugee youth who re-enact their harrowing experiences of the genocide in a live theatre production. In this workshop, Zine will present on participatory action research and ethnographic theatre as research methods. He will reflect on his research and production processes that were designed to allow the Rohingya youth to be heard through story-telling, performance, self-reflection, with an aim to create a deeper understanding of their political agency.
Join us for this exciting presentation and conversation!
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org by March 8th as space is limited.
A light lunch will be served following the workshop at 3pm.
