Lecture: “‘Against a Sharp White Background’: Toward Intersectional Research in Girls' Media Studies”

February 13, 2018 - 12:30pm - 2:00pm
Speaker/Participants: 
Mary Celeste Kearney (Notre Dame)

Cosponsored by the Humanities Center and the Children's Literature program.

Abstract:

In this presentation, Kearney will make an appeal for the greater adoption of an intersectional approach to identity studies as well as encourage researchers to look beyond the center of the frame when analyzing media texts. Via an overview of some of her recent research on black girlhood in early U.S. television, she will demonstrate the usefulness of recalibrating our gaze and complicating our analysis.
