Blackness and Anti-Blackness in American Public Life

Online Sep 25 03:00 pm

Blackness has been (and continues to be) under attack globally, but particularly within our country. As colleges and universities across America begin to grapple with some of the wider ranging and material effects of racism, particularly anti-Blackness, three scholars will hold a joint book talk to chart cultural histories of Blackness through law, politics, and media. Featured authors include:

  • Lisa M. Corrigan, Black Feelings: Race and the Affect in the Long Sixties
  • Alfred L. Martin, Jr., The Generic Closet: Black Gayness and the Black-Cast Sitcom
  • Anjali Vats, The Color of Creatorship: Intellectual Property, Race, and the Making of Americans

This symposium is co-sponsored by the Institute of Communications Research and the Department of Communication.
