Women in African Cinema Podcast Series

This podcast series is based on the book Women in African Cinema: Beyond the Body Politics, by Lizelle Bisschoff and Stefanie Van de Peer (Routledge, 2019). Each podcast will be based on a different chapter of the book. We created this series to make the book more accessible to students, researchers and cinephiles, during this time of lockdown.
