How do we discuss our identity and can we talk about a collective national identity? Can we define Britishness? Using historical clips from the BFI National Archive, recent films, and TV Drama, this interactive study day will examine how Britain has been represented and whether it is a rich cultural mix or culturally fragmented. The main case study investigates national and cultural identities through representations of second-generation British Muslim families. The event is suitable for specific units such as ‘British Film: Identity Study’ (WJEC AS Film Studies), ‘Media and Collective Identity’ (A2 Media Studies OCR), A2 student research investigations (AQA, WJEC); as well as broader representation and identity study in film and media courses at AS and A2. There will be an introduced screening of a film linked to the main case study in the afternoon.
