Kum-Kum Bhavnani from the University of California describes herself as  “a university professor by day and a filmmaker by night”. In this public keynote lecture Bhavnani discusses the making of her two award-winning films (The Shape of Water and Nothing like Chocolate), how they work to dissolve boundaries between scholarly and public understandings, as well as how they attempt to “speed up processes of social justice”.

Co-sponsored by the The Brock University Council for Research in the Social Sciences (CRISS) and the Social Justice Research Institute (SJRI) at Brock University.

WIth funding support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
