This thesis draws upon the various knowledges of Sudanese students from refugee backgrounds, and upon the principles of critical pedagogy. Cross-Marked critiques current educational practices which marginalise, exclude and objectify those who are emerging from refugee pasts; seeks to re-frame refugeity as a state of being rather than a fixed identity; and foregrounds ways in which all ethnographic and pedagogical collaborators can share in an evolving criticality, using multiple and creative methodologies and contexts. The seven films (six co-participant films and my own reflexive film) and exegesis which comprise Cross-Marked comment on the complexities of the performance of identity for both the researcher and her co-participants. Taken together, the films and the exegesis seek to offer new methods and an evocative depiction of how to move further toward an engagement with 21st century intercultural collaboration, both inside and outside of the classroom.
