Dr Sandeep Parmar, the University of Liverpool’s fourth BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinker, has produced her first film as part of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) initiative.
Dr Parmar, a poet and lecturer in the University’s Department of English, as well as co-director of the Department’s Centre for New and International Writing, wrote and filmed a performace of her poem Archive for a Daughter, which was inspired by her family’s migration from India to Derby and then to California.
New Generation Thinkers is a nationwide search for the brightest minds with the potential to share their cutting edge academic ideas through radio and television. Those selected have an opportunity to develop their ideas for television, by making short films for BBC Arts Online.
