Long Abstract:

This event will showcase 'She Waves At Me' a short ethnographic film about aging bodies in aging buildings directed by Inge Daniels, Professor of Anthropology at the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography at the University of Oxford. The film forms an integral part of Disobedient Buildings, an AHRC-funded project, that uses visual ethnography to explore housing, welfare and well being in European tower blocks (www.disobedientbuildings.com).

Inge Daniels, the Principal Investigator on the Disobedient Buildings project, will contextualise, screen and discuss the film, which is based on 2 years of ethnographic fieldwork (combined with a range of experimental methods) conducted in central London at the height of the pandemic between July 2020 and June 2022. The film focuses on one of the key themes that developed during the research; the elderly, care and housing. 'She Waves At Me' juxtaposes the intricate care that goes into maintaining aging buildings and their surroundings with elderly inhabitants’ struggles and strategies to create safe and comfortable homes for themselves and their loved ones.
