FILMS DE COMBAT (LINGUISTIQUES) 40 min. French spoken / subtitles

In the lecture 'Films de combat (linguistiques)' in 'Le confort moderne' (Poitiers, France) Eliane Bots explored the possibility to combine lecturing and screening of film excerpts to eliminate the French-English-Dutch language barrier. Instead of seeing this as a 'obstacle' she used elements of film and video, such as; subtitles, voice over, moving image and sound, to communicate with the audience and give a non-typical lecture.

Meanwhile she presented her own work-process of making films in which language and communication play major roles. The excerpts and works that are shown during the lecture all have, by their subject, research, place in history or method, a connection with the theme communication and language.
