Hi have graduated with a 2.1 in African Studies from SOAS.
I am currently working on my Masters in Global Cinema and the Transcultural.
I am doing a whole year of African Film and Video. Have done two essays one on symbolism in Touki Bouki by Djibril Diop Mambety and the other I have tried to define a term, The Colonial Voiceover using Boy Kumasenu by Gold Coast Film Unit and The Witches of Gambaga by Yaba Badoe
My research interests are race, education, film, urbanism, nationalism, gangsterisms, violence and the hip hop movement in film.
Am doing my dissertation in a different field, will be looking at gay male representations in African film.
Other research interests include African literatures, Black Consciousness movements and African and Afrophone philosophies.
I am aiming to become a lecturer but am going to take a year out before starting a Phd. I also may be attempting to set up a film festival shortly as have planned a programme.
Away from study I like music, film, theatre, gigs/concerts, cooking, eating out, politics, culture, museums, reading, walking, some sports, playing on PS2 and travelling.
Dan Perry does not have any videos yet.
