Primary Instructor:

In this class, we will examine representations of blackness in the media in Latin America and the United States. We will begin in Latin America to understand how national ideologies of racial democracy that advocate colorblindness underwrite the exclusion of Black actors and allow for stereotypical representations of blackness. We will then move to the United States to think about how new discourses of “post racial” America and practices, such as colorblind casting, inform and frame the contemporary production of racial narratives in network television.
