Nollywood and Nigeria’s Internal Conflicts: Media in an Advisory Capacity

Wed, 26 April 2017, 12:00 to 14:00

Christadoulou Meeting Room (CMR01), OU, Milton Keynes

International Development seminar presented by Visiting Research Fellow Dr Françoise Ugochukwu and doctoral student Alex Bud (OU).

Lunch (provided) from 12.00, presentation & discussion 12.30 - 14.00. Reserve your free place on Eventbrite.

 

Abstract
After decades of military rule, Nigeria's return to democracy in 1999 has allowed its cinema to screen past and present conflicts. The paper presented by Françoise and Alex – based on the analysis of three films that discuss the 1967-70 civil war and the current Delta crisis – will reveal Nollywood as both sounding board and political advisory platform.
