Abstract

This article examines the research relationship between one Sudanese-Australian co-participant in the film series and doctoral research project Cross-marked: Sudanese-Australian Young Women Talk Education, and her American-Australian researcher. The article draws on recent ethnographic documentary film theory and the radical pedagogy scholarship of McLaren, Giroux and others to examine notions of becoming and the performative construction of self that occurs in schools. This creative doctoral research project uses short film to explore the educational experiences of Sudanese-Australian young women in Melbourne from refugee backgrounds, and offers possibilities for creative projects in educational contexts to enhance learning outcomes for both students and their teachers.
