  3. Seminar – Week 13   Film screening

    While we will not have sufficient time to discuss the film following the screening, it will serve to inform some of our discussions throughout this term.

     

    This is the first in a series of 6 documentaries which you can view through Moodle. I would recommend you view the other 5 in your own time, as they serve to illuminate many of the issues we shall be addressing in classes.
