 Academics Without Guarantees: Screening and A Special C-Centre Event Memorizing Professor Stuart Hall


The Stuart Hall Project is a sensitive, emotionally charged portrait of cultural theorist Stuart Hall. Highly acclaimed at the 2013 Sundance and Sheffield Documentary festivals, the new film is produced by award-winning documentarian John Akomfrah (The Nine Muses).

A founding figure of contemporary cultural studies – and one of the most inspiring voices of the post-war Left – Stuart Hall’s resounding and ongoing influence on British intellectual life commenced soon after he emigrated from Jamaica in 1951. Combining extensive archival imagery – television excerpts, home movies, family photos – with specially filmed material and a personally mixed Miles Davis soundtrack, Akomfrah’s filmmaking approach matches the agility of Hall’s intellect, its intimate play with memory, identity and scholarly impulse traversing the changing historical landscape of the second half of the 20th century.

C-Centre organizes this special screening and discussion session in memory of Prof. Stuart Hall, who passed away on Feb 10, 2014.
