Media Images-Race, Representation and Repressed Histories

About This Item

Visual Culture in African American Studies: An understanding of the history of art and visual culture has much to offer the field of African American Studies. Imagery can be key in understanding social behavior, political alliances, and value systems. This presentation examines the role of visual culture in advancing Black Power initiatives forty years ago. Sign of the Crossover: Mainstreaming Filipino Liminality Filipinos are exerting a dominant presence in the U.S. both demographically and in America's living rooms. Even so, I comment on the incongruity of Filipinos as the center of an Asian American racial discourse because of U.S. denial of colonial violence and the constricting narratives of East Asian Orientalism. Beyond Kingdoms, Kwashiorkor, Conflict and Corruption: The role of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency in Reshaping Perceptions of Africa and Africans This research project employs focus group data and content analysis techniques to address the lack of complex images of Africa and Africans that exist in the American media, using the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency as a vehicle for comparison.
