A Conversation with Mike Leigh

Mike Leigh and Andrea Sabbadini

Andrea Sabbadini, a London psychoanalyst who is head of the European Psychoanalytic Film Festival and also a member of our journal’s Editorial Board, interviewed the British film director Mike Leigh as part of the Connecting Conversations series* in London on 29 June 2008. We thought the conversation and the questions and answers that followed were especially effective in illuminating Mike Leigh’s unique improvisatory method of working with his actors—a method that has resulted in such dramatically immediate and psychologically convincing films as Secrets and Lies (1996) and Vera Drake (2004).—The Editors

Discourses of Agency and Gender in Girls' Conversations on Sport in Windhoek, Namibia

Valerie R. Friesen

In many parts of the developing world, sport is a non-traditional activity for girls, one which is being used increasingly by development organizations for the empowerment of girls and women. However, very little research has been done on the complex subjective perceptions and understandings of the participants themselves. The girls in this study were participants in an after-school program in Windhoek, Namibia, which combines academics and sport. I used discourse analysis to highlight issues of agency, power, and gender that emerge from their reflections on their sport participation. Girls' conversations often revealed acceptance and normalization of dominant gender norms but also a growing critical consciousness, and demonstrated the numerous ways girls resist, negotiate and engage with these discourses through their own perceptions of power, agency, and hope.

Meditations on Conversations . . .

Jeffrey Newman

In the early years of European Judaism, these colloquia (possibly following the pattern established by Commentary) were a distinctive feature. Re-reading the six of them is both moving and thought-provoking. But do these colloquia themselves still have anything to offer? Can we learn from what took place? Should we attempt to replicate the format? What follows is partial rather than systematic and the reflections follow personal interests rather than being judgments on quality.
