In a recent email to the English department, Prof. Rani Crowe wrote, “During this time when we are all social distancing and staying home, I have created a film series for the English Department and friends to be able to watch a movie together and chat online about it.
- to create a series of films with diverse representation, voices, styles and subjects to enhance our curriculum
- to inspire conversations about films in the same way that, say, the InPrint Festival inspires conversations about books
- to provide an opportunity to build the #bsuenglish community while staying home and staying safe
